For the repair and recovery to damaged turf, late in the fall or early in the spring.


Soccer, football, and rugby can all cause significant damage to turfgrass fields, especially late in the season. With games and use at many locations extending into November, historically turf managers have had limited options and invariably must wait till spring temperatures arrive for planting.


SOS Cool Season mixture, a 50/50 mix combining Panterra turf annual with perennial ryegrass, now provides an option and the opportunity to plant in late fall and still achieve germination and turf cover. With documentation of SOS turf-type annuals germinating with soil temperatures in the low 40's, repair and cover can now be  achieved late in the season. For multi-purpose fields that host baseball and softball in the early spring, the opportunity for teams to play on renovated, repaired fields is a dream come true. 


Seeded at rates from 10-15 lbs per 1000 sq ft, SOS Cool Season mixture provides the answer to 'Cold weather' repair.
