Great Color

Great turf starts with great color, and Nexus GT is one of the darkest varieties available, making it ideal for straight or mixed seeding of permanent lawns, as well as overseeding both cool season and warm season turf areas.

Great Traffic Tolerance

Traffic can be tough on turf, but with Nexus GT, your turf has a better chance of quick recovery from all sorts of traffic, whether it is from professional athletes tearing it up and crushing it under foot and body, or simply from the children and pets horsing around in the backyard.

Great Seedling Vigor

Trial results from five different locations indicate Nexus GT takes off rapidly. This means landscapers, professionals, and homeowners can expect quick results from new seedings as well as overseeding existing turf areas.

Great Disease Resistance

According to the latest national turfgrass testing (NTEP) data, Nexus GT has shown top scores for resistance to red thread and pink snow mold. It has also shown improved resistance to crown rust and gray leaf spot.

Great Turf Quality

Nexus GT has rated well throughout the nation, with exceptional turf quality in a wide range of locations, including Utah, North Dakota, Missouri, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Some of these locations represent drought stress, harsh winter conditions, and extra traffic pressure.
