Falcon IV Turf Type Tall Fescue
Falcon IV is a new and improved, heat and disease-resistant, tall fescue variety developed for superior turf quality across a wide area of adaptation. It is dark green in color, fine textured with excellent wear tolerance. Falcon IV exhibits a unique combination of traits, including dense growth, improved turf quality and resistance to brown patch incited by Rhizoctonia solani. Falcon IV is an endophyte-enhanced tall fescue with >92% Neotyphodium coenophialum endophyte, which provides resistance to a number of leaf and crown-feeding insects and nematodes. The presence of endophyte also contributes to improved biotic and abiotic stress tolerance, faster seedling establishment, enhanced fall recovery, and reduced summer weed invasion.
