Masterline PM125 Birdstrike Grass Seed

This seed mixture is predominantly comprised of two cultivars of tall fescue. Tall fescue has an erect, stiff growth habit and is highly resistant to frost and drought and can easily be managed to the optimum mown height of 150 mm. It has been demonstrated that by managing airport grassland in this way it is possible to reduce the incidences of aircraft striking birds while in flight. Annual Rye-grass is included in the mix as it provides rapid germination and groundcover thus acting as a nurse crop for the tall fescue.
