SOS series of overseeding ryegrass allows you to choose the optimum transitioning speed for your turf application. With quick establishment, fine leaf texture and a dark green color, you'll enjoy the SOS 400 ryegrass. The SOS 400 is a blend of two turf type annual ryegrass seeds that allows for a quick transition in the spring.
Establishment: Mow and rake the desired area to be overseeded to remove any unneccesary thatch or depris. Broadcast the seed in 2 different, criss crossing directions to reduce skips and overlaps. Seed SOS 400 at a rate of 15 pounds per 1000 square feet. Water in immediately after seeding to ensure good seed-to-soil contact.
Watering and Fertility: Turf type ryegrass generally use around 4-6" of rainfall/precipitation per month. During establishment, light, frequent watering applications are recommended to keep the soil around the seed moist. Watering will begin to be reduced after germination and as the seed matures. Fertility levels are fairly low for ryegrass seed, light applications of nitrogen once or twice monthly during the growing season will give you enough fertility for a quality stand.
