4TURF® stays green and playable through spring and summer droughts
The climate is changing, and sports pitches, golf courses and municipal parks have adapt. Deep-rooting, drought-tolerant turf grasses such as 4turf® (turf tetraploid perennial ryegrass) are able to survive spring and summer droughts. Even better, 4turf® stays green and playable with less need for irrigation during long dry periods when water may have to be rationed
Deep-rooting 4turf® for more playing hours and less watering
As spring and summer droughts become more common, and water becomes a more scarce resource, turf managers need to look for new ways of maintaining lush green grass all summer long. The solution is to sow drought-tolerant tetraploid varieties from our 4turf® range
4turf®'s ability to withstand drought eases the pressure on turf professionals. They get more playing hours, yet spend less time watering or maintaining their turf. 4turf® saves time and money.
Green grass all year round with 4turf®
4turf® varieties are clear winners when it comes to drought
Their ability to quickly establish their root mass in the spring is the best protection against a spring drought. Later in the season, their above-ground drought-tolerance combines with their strong root mass to give excellent resistance to a summer drought. Trials conducted in France and the Czech Republic confirm that, after a summer drought, tetraploid 4turf® plots look far greener than those of diploid ryegrasses.
