Grey Leaf Spot Resistance
Since the initial outbreak in the mid-1990’s, Seed Research has been feverishly working to develop varieties that can withstand the ravages of Gray Leaf Spot (GLS). The initial GLS screening cycle has yielded varieties that are significantly more resistant to GLS than has ever been seen before — SR 4220, SR 4350, SR 4420, SR 4500 and SR 4550. The addition of SR 4600 adds the highest level of GLS resistance. All succeeding generations of our perennial ryegrasses will go through this grueling screening process before they are approved for blending in CHAMPION GQ.

Insect Resistance:
This perennial ryegrass offers high levels of viable endophyte providing resistance to billbugs, sod webworms, chinch bugs, armyworms, and aphids.
