Defiance XRE Tall Fescue Grass Seed
Features & Planting Information For Defiance XRE

Defiance XRE is a tall fescue grass seed blend that produces a rich dark green turf or lawn that relies less on irrigation and chemical input than comparable mixtures. The roots of Defiance XRE reach deep into the soil for exceptional water absorption requiring less frequent irrigation thus providing a naturally drought tolerant turf grass. Defiance XRE is a tall fescue grass blend that develops rhizomes for a spreading fescue that "knits" together for injury repair. The high level of natural endophytes in this fescue grass blend, has shown proven Brown Patch and other disease resistance. This is an eco-friendly solution to the ongoing challenge of providing hearty lush turf for your commercial application, home lawn, or athletic field.

Defiance XRE is a Turf Type Tall Fescue Seed Blend*

Defiance XRE Tall Fescue Seed Blend usually contains three or more of the following premium tall fescue seed varieties:

* Leonardo or Rowdy (Turf type, High disease resistance, High turf performance)
* Speedway or Rendition (Fast Germination, Good Salt tolerance, High disease resistance.)
* Guardian 41 or SR-8650 Tall Fescue (Rhizome type, High disease resistance, Produces high-quality turf.)

*Note: Tall fescue seed varieties in Defiance XRE Tall Fescue Seed Blend and their percentages are subject to change due to seed availability. Defiance XRE will ALWAYS have two to three tall fescue varieties with rhizomes in addition to one or two top performance tall fescue grass varieties.
