Magnum Gold Perennial Ryegrass - was developed to address the qualities that turf professionals told us are most important to them: rapid establishment, stress and disease resistance, and rapid recovery. Magnum Gold is composed
of our exceptional endophyte-enhanced varieties of perennial ryegrass.
Gray Leaf Spot Resistant
Since the initial disease 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). Harrier, Hawkeye 2, Peregrine and other cultivars in this
blend were developed for high GLS resistance and broad genetics. All succeeding generations of SRO perennial ryegrasses go through this grueling screening process before they are approved for blending in Magnum Gold.
Magnum Gold contains very high levels of viable endophyte with a broad genetic base. Due to these high levels, Magnum Gold shows enhanced resistance to many insects including: billbugs, sod webworms, chinch bugs, armyworms and aphids. The presence of the endophyte also contributes to improved stress tolerance with better Summer survival, enhanced Fall recovery and reduced weed invasion.
