Seed Icon System

 

To achieve an accurate evaluation of a grass variety's performance, independent screening trials are conducted to identify key characteristics. The Everris Grass seed icon system highlights varieties that excel. These are blended to create seed mixtures with all-round performance to suit all situations and locations.

Wear tolerance

Able to withstand intensive wear with good recovery.
Suitable for sports stadia, training grounds and any areasa under intensive use.

Cold tolerance

Low temperature germination and growth. Suitable for early and late season conditions where low ground/air temperatures are experienced.

Disease tolerance

Higher natural tolerance to the common turf diseases.

Drought tolerance

Tolerance to high temperatures and drought. Suitable for areas with limited water resources or where high temperatures restrict the range of species that can be grown.

Low maintenance

A characteristic that encompasses all aspects of turf management that reduce inputs. This includes reduced clipping yields for less mowing, as well as lower nutritional, water and disease control requirements.

Salt tolerance

Tolerance of salinity. Suitable for coastal locations with naturally higher salinity and facilities using irrigation drawn from sources with high salinity levels.

Shade tolerance

Performs well in low light levels. Suitable in stadia, building surrounds or in natural shade created by trees.

Sod (turf) quality

Blends that are free from contamination with other grasses and weeds.

Visual merit

An overall combination of grass sward quality taking into account year-round colour, shoot density, disease resitance and leaf texture.

Wear tolerance

Able to withstand intensive wear with good recovery. Suitable for sports stadia, training grounds and any areas under intensive use.
