Paragon GLR Perennial Ryegrass



Paragon GLR Perennial Ryegrass

Paragon GLR is the breakthrough variety for which turf managers in the Northeast have been waiting! Since the first outbreaks of gray leaf spot (Pyricularia Grisea) in the late 1990's, TMI has been working with several renowned breeding programs to produce a resistant variety that could withstand the ravages of a gray leaf spot outbreak.

Through repeated infections of perennial ryegrass clones in the lab and in the field, successive generations have been screened for their ability to survive an attack of this devastating fungus. Only the disease free survivors have been pooled with the deep green color and fine texture for which the original Paragon was noted.

The result is a spectacular variety that has been developed using only traditional breeding methods. Supplies are limited, and we suggest you contact your local distributor early to ensure a fall delivery!
