TORPEDO 2 turf-type tall fescue Key Points Winter active Highly rhizomatous Fine leaf texture Suitable for racetracks, parklands, sports ovals, home lawns

Characteristics and areas of use Torpedo 2 is a winter active, highly rhizomatous tall fescue with medium-fine leaf texture that spreads and self repairs through extensive underground rhizomes. Unlike traditional tall fescue which has broad leaves, Torpedo 2 has finer leaves and an upright growth habit making it ideal to use in racetracks and in mixes with perennial ryegrass. Torpedo 2 is suited to use in racetracks, parklands, secondary ovals and erosion control where the self repairing rhizomatous nature of Torpedo 2 aids in surface stability.

Breeding history Torpedo 2 is the second generation of winter active rhizomatous tall fescues selected from the original Torpedo. The original plants came from North West Spain.

Sowing rate and maintenance Torpedo 2 tall fescue can be sown in parklands, racetracks, home lawns and general purpose turf at 40 - 50 g/m2 or 400 - 500 kg/ha. Use the higher seeding rate for racetracks and where more rapid establishment is required. Lower seeding rates are possible for erosion control and ground cover in mixtures.
