Try first on a small scale before changing the rate, or any other variables. As circumstances can differ and the application of our products is beyond our control, ICL cannot be held responsible for any adverse results.

Establishment and maintenance:
For best results, seed at 10 – 15 gr/m² in early autumn or spring. It’s best to keep the seedbed moist throughout germination and establishment. Germination should begin within 12 – 21 days with optimal temperatures (12° – 24°C), with full coverage in 8 – 10 weeks. Ensure it has reached approximately 5cm before cutting for the first time.

Established turf maintenance:
Looks especially good when fertilized annually with nitrogen at 15 – 20 gr/m². We recommend irrigating deeply and infrequently, or lightly and frequently in absence of rainfall. We recommend a cutting height of 12 – 50 mm.
