Dark Green Color
Nexus XR's deep, dark-green, dense turf and extra disease resistance makes Nexus XR ideal for use on fairways, athletic fields, home lawns, high traffic areas, and other locations where high quality, dark turf is desired. Nexus XR is also perfect for adding dark brilliant color to a bluegrass or tall fescue mixture and for blending with other perennial ryegrasses for overseeding applications.
Genetic Color Ratings (Top 10 Scores)
Many turf applications have extra pressure from wheel or foot traffic. With Nexus XR, you can expect fairway-quality turfgrass that can withstand the extra pressure. Data from multiple states shows that Nexus XR can handle the stress of heavy traffic. In Nebraska, Nexus XR was the top scoring variety in trials that applied 8-12 passes a week (Aug-Sept) with a wheeled golf traffic simulator.
Disease Resistance & Other Strengths
Nexus XR provides improved resistance to a wide variety of diseases, including: brown patch, red thread, pythium blight, pink and other snow mold and anthracno.
Nexus XR has also shown good resistance to winter temperatures, weed and poa annua pressure, as well as tolerance to the herbicide Velocity (bispyribac-sodium).

Enhance Your Seed
We provide an array of seed enhancements, including bio stimulants, macro and micronutrients, water absorbents, fungicides, and colorants. These are available for all seed types and uses.
For ideal turf, plant Nexus XR on fertile, neutral pH soils during the cooler seasons of the year, such as spring and fall. If needing to plant during other times, plan on additional overseeding.
