Developing Healthier Turfgrasses through Disease Resistance

pure seed virtual field day

Disease resistant turfgrass is the primary goal for new product development at Pure-Seed Testing. At their research facilities on both sides of the country, Pure-Seed Testing pushes turfgrasses to the limit. By exposing plants to the most extreme disease pressures, they are able to breed new varieties with greater disease resistance requiring fewer inputs. Learn more about the advanced research process and the resulting products in Pure Seed‘s virtual field day video series Varieties Make a Difference.

Disease & Inputs: Healthier Varieties

We manage our turf trials to get as much disease as we can. Under this pressure, we are able to select plants with improved genetic resistance.
