Description

Rebel IV is an elite tall fescue turf grass that requires less irrigation frequency than bluegrass, ryegrass and fine fescues. Rebel IV is a shade tolerant variety and ideal for home lawns, parks, and sod production. It exhibits outstanding wear tolerance and resists hard use on park and home lawns.

  • Outstanding dark green colour
  • Superb fine texture
  • Dwarf growing characteristics
  • Improved disease resistance
  • Admirable drought tolerance

Rebel IV has an early spring green-up and holds its colour late into the fall. Rebel IV has performed well under low to moderate fertility, but performs better under high fertility levels associated with the maintenance of extensively used sports fields and showcase lawns.

It is recommended for use in sod farms, parks, sports fields, home lawns and golf courses (roughs).

Cover seed to a depth not exceeding 5 mm and keep seedlings moist until well rooted. The first mowing can be expected after 30 days, or when the grass blades reach a length of 50-70 mm. Limited use of the area can be expected in 6 weeks. Rebel IV can tolerate a mowing height of 40 mm.

The recommended sowing rates for home lawns, parks and sod farms are 3.5 – 5 kgs/100m2 and for sports fields/parks 5 – 7 kgs/100m2.
