GetPlus: Forages with Beneficial Endophytes 

Traditionally, forage grasses have been defined by two traits: yield and persistence. We also place a strong emphasis on a third trait, forage quality, because forage quality directly affects animal performance and your profitability. After many years of research, we were able to incorporate all three of these traits into select varieties. The technology bringing all of the together is E34 and NEA2 for beneficial, non-toxic, fungal endophytes.

Rhizomatous Tall Fescue® (RTF): It's Fescue, but Better 

The significance of rhizomes in turf is their ability to repair damaged areas, maintain a more uniform turf density, increase sod tensile strength, add drought tolerance, and reduce the need for frequent overseeding. These deep rhizomes spread laterally and are not as invasive as those of Kentucky bluegrass or creeping red fescue. Our RTF program has an extensive history of breeding and development so you can be sure when you choose RTF, you’re choosing tried and true varieties.
