Reinders 50-50 Athletic Field Elite Mix provides a durable, high quality turf for areas such as athletic fields, playgrounds, golf course tees, fairways and high traffic areas. Replicator and Fiesta 4 Perennial Ryegrasses have superior wear tolerance, excellent winter hardiness and a vigorous deep penetrating root system capable of withstanding compacted soils. Granite, Mercury and Fielder are three of the most traffic tolerant bluegrasses available. Their aggressive rhizome systems spread to repair damaged areas, such as divots. They knit a tight sod to produce uniform secure footing. All have excellent spring and fall vigor with superior midsummer performance. They are also resistant to diseases common to intensively managed turf areas.
50-50 Athletic Field Elite Mix will provide maximum quality and recuperative potential when fertilized a minimum of three times yearly. Optimum quality is realized with 4 to 5 fertilizations per season depending upon length of season and soil type. Athletic fields should be routinely maintained at a height of 2" to 3". This mixture will maintain density and aggressiveness when mowed at 3/4" on tees and fairways.
