RTF Tall Fescue
RTF-Sod-logo                                                      
Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF®) is an advanced generation of turf-type  tall fescue which produces rhizomes. A rhizome is an underground stem  that penetrates laterally through the soil to spread the plant. Rhizomes send shoots up to the soil surface while extending new roots downward,  forming a new plant. The rhizomatous nature of RTF is similar to  Kentucky bluegrass. However, unlike Kentucky bluegrass RTF will survive  the transition zone climate and other tall fescue turf regions.

RTF is excellent for: Home lawns, Sports fields, Parks, Golf courses, and Commercial sites.


FEATURES & BENEFITS

Self-Repairing Turf
    
     Quickly fills in damaged or open spots with new shoots of grass.
     High level of traffic tolerance.
     A dense turf without open areas prevents weed growth.


Strong, Deep Root System and Drought Tolerance

     Rapid development of a deep root system.
     Excellent drought and heat tolerance with less irrigation.
     Adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions.

Grows Great in Sun or Shade

     Excellent in the transition zone climate and other tall fescue turf regions.
     Will not brown out in the intense summer heat.
     One of the most shade tolerant cool season grasses.


Excellent Color and Density

     Has fine leaves which produce a very dense, uniform turf.
     Early spring green-up.
     Withstands stressful hot temperatures and keeps its rich green color.


Excellent Insect and Disease Resistance

     Endophyte enhanced for improved insect, disease and drought tolerance.
     Environmentally friendly, reduces chemical and fertilizer inputs.


Improved Value for the Turf Professional
    
     RTF® sod requires less overseeding, has fewer weed problems and prevents                 “wide-leafed ugly clumps” of tall fescue plants which are common in  other tall              fescue turf.
    Young plants first build the root and shoot system then concentrate on                           producing rhizomes. With RTF sod, the rhizomes are already developed.
    RTF sod, with the aid of rhizomes anchors itself faster, water requirements                    are reduced and turf can be utilized sooner.
