Convincing results from France

In the official French results, Hastings tops the list for both the Sport and the Lawn index. This is also showing in the winter and summer aspects, ensuring a year round high performance.

Top of the restrictive Dutch "Grasgids" list

With top scores for density and persistency, Hastings also performs in Dutch trials. As in France the performance in the summer during drought is also confirmed.

Imperial in the STRI Lawn table

With excellent scores for density and visual merit, Hastings also reaches the top of the list in the UK.

Recommended uses

Hastings will do fine in all situations where strong creeping red fescue is used, and in particular in high demanding prestige ornamental lawns and where wear tolerance is important (fairways, playgrounds...).
