Firecracker LS

Firecracker LS is sold out for 2016



LATERAL SPREAD TECHNOLOGY™ (LS) Firecracker LS tall fescue is an initial release from Mountain View Seeds Lateral Spread Technology™ (LS) research program, striving to develop fescues that, through natural mechanisms including increased tillering or rhizome formation, exhibit greater potential for tighter density, particularly under stress, and self recuperation from traffic, wear, or injury.

Firecracker LS has scored in the highest NTEP grouping for overall quality under medium fertility, traffic, and hot humid environments. It is among the finest in texture, with uniform densitiy, particularly during the summer stress period.

Firecracker LS produces a deep root system and aggressively tillers to improve wear tolerance and hasten recuperation from injury. Sod strength is excellent as is a high stand coverage that crowds out weeds. Firecracker LS contains moderately high levels of endophyte for improved resistance to surface feeding insects. Geographically, Firecracker LS has scored in the top grouping for overall quality across a broad swath of regions from north central thru the transition zone and across to the southeast and the southwest. Select with confidence.

Energize your variety selection with Firecracker LS. You’ll get a bang out of it!!
