New Sealand was developed by Pure-Seed Testing and screened in Oregon for early maturity, dark leaf color, high seed yield potential, transition, traffic tolerance and crown rust resistance. New Sealand was also tested for overseeding in North Carolina and Arizona.
New Sealand is a perennial ryegrass that is adapted for permanent turf use as well as overseeding of dormant Bermuda for golf course fairways and tees and sports facilities. New Sealand can be used in blends with other perennial ryegrasses. New Sealand is projected to be a long-term widely available variety
New Sealand is adapted in the northern climates and displays good winter color retention and early spring green-up. New Sealand applied by itself, in the southern overseeding of dormant bermudagrass, is quick to establish and displays good traffic tolerance. With its early maturity, New Sealand will offer an easier transition for bermudagrass coming out of winter dormancy. This trait also makes it an excellent component in overseeding blends.
