Use this slide if you are going to use a picture. To make a presentation interesting, you should have images on at least 50% of the slides. Without visuals, you will quickly put people to sleep. You might anyway, but you have a better chance of keeping their attention if you use some nice visuals. Pictures can make the presentation look more professional.

Delete this text and place picture in same area, lining picture up with top of yellow text.

Use 72dpi jpgs images.To shrink picture proportionally once it’s on the slide:

1. Click on the picture (note corner handles).

2. Hold down the Shift key, then press and drag a corner handle towards the middle of the picture.

3. Release the Shift key first then the mouse.

Turf-type Tall Fescue

  • Strengths
    • Excellent wear tolerance once established
    • Drought tolerance useful many sites
    • Can be mown at 1/2 inch
    • Shade tolerant
    • Tolerates broad range of soils
    • Speed of establishment
      • New data Ohio State - new varieties can maintain quality with wear after 15 weeks, spring establishment
slide8

Regiment II Turf-type Tall Fescue

  • High percentage of rhizomes
  • Rapid rhizome expression
  • Very dark green color
  • Fine texture
  • Dwarf growing habit
  • Superior density, weed resistant
  • Quick establishment
  • Rapid recovery
  • Early Spring green-up
slide9

Blackwatch Turf-type Tall Fescue

  • Very dark green color
  • Fine texture
  • High turf quality - recommended in many states
  • Open, dwarf growing habit
  • Reduced brown patch incidence
  • Superior density, weed resistant
  • Quick establishment
  • Rapid recovery
  • Early Spring green-up
slide10

Guardian 21 Turf-type Tall Fescue

  • Very dark green color
  • Fine texture
  • High turf quality
    • Consistent high performance under all management levels
    • High performance in all climate zones
  • Semi-dwarf growth habit
  • High wear resistance
  • Reduced brown patch incidence
  • Superior density, weed resistant
slide11

Turf-type Tall Fescue

  • Weaknesses
    • Bunch-type growth
    • Speed of repair slow
    • Rhizomes in new varieties may help
    • Need more winter-active growth
    • Brown patch susceptibility - in enclosed shade can severely damage
    • Old cultivars lacked density and texture, new cultivars finer textured, darker green, higher density
slide12

Turf-type Tall Fescue

  • How to use
    • Best results when blended with Kentucky bluegrass - 85 to 90% Tall fescue
    • Blending with Texas x Kentucky hybrids may be useful in stress sites
    • Brown patch reduced in blends
    • Establish in spring or late summer
    • Provide protection against Pythium and seedling brown patch

Tall Fescue

  • Best results when blended with Kentucky bluegrass - 85 to 90% Tall fescue
  • Blending with Texas x Kentucky hybrids may be useful in stress sites
  • Brown patch reduced in blends
  • Establish in spring or late summer
  • Provide protection against Pythium and seedling brown patch
  • Overseed on yearly basis - Before or after play preferred. Use Transitional ryegrass to patch.

Rhizomatous Tall Fescues

  • SRO is the leader in Rhizome Enhanced Tall Fescue development – SR8250, SR8550, SR8600,
  • Tulsa II, Crewcut II, Grande & Grande II, Regiment II
  • Diverse genetic backgrounds
  • Limited Supplies and High Demand
  • Increased wear tolerance and persistence
  • Continued development:
  • Intercross in isolation - Plant the progeny
  • Identify levels of rhizomes, Release new variety
