AgriDark is a fine leaf couch variety that’s rapidly gaining popularity & becoming known as a high performance sports turf & a very well presenting residential turf through its excellent qualities such as its dark green appearance, drought tolerance, rapid recovery, surface density & luxurious soft feel.

Why Choose AgriDark

  • Beautiful dark green colour all year
  • Very soft fine leaf & overall density
  • Fast recovery from damage & wear all year round
  • Winter active
  • High wear tolerance
  • Stripes up very well with cylinder mowing
  • You’re a true lawn fanatic

Performance Specifics

  • Low to zero light tolerance, AgriDark has proved to be superior over all other sports turf couch grasses in stadiums where light is critical for turf grass survival, these stadiums are now experiencing superior regeneration when subjected to extended periods of zero light when covered by an event
  • Rapid Establishment on minimal water requirements, either solid turf or stolons, this variety strikes faster than any other common green couch types
  • High wear resistance & rapid recovery from damage all year round,
  • Low leaf water content, meaning less loss of traction in the wet (ideal for sports field surfaces)
  • Superior colour retention down to -2°C frost temperatures
  • Good drought tolerance once established

Maintenance Tips

  • Requires regular mowing due to its rapid growth & recovery however this can be easily managed with growth regulators when growth is not required,
  • Weed control requirements are minimal due to the dense leaf content, like most green couch’s weed control is easy with selective herbicides,
  • Disease and pest resistance has been excellent with actively growing turf, since planting at our farm in 2010 we have had no disease issues and very little pest pressure with AgriDark,
  • Dense root system requires de-thatching approximately once a year,
  • Due to AgriDark's high performance, it does require a decent amount of fertiliser throughout the year, 2-3 applications annually of a good quality slow release fertiliser is ideal, with a variety of both chemical & organic,
  • Can be mowed quite low (scalped) and will recover, and is perfect for cylinder mowing,
  • In full sun applications AgriDark can easily be mown as low as 10mm, to achieve these low heights you would need to use a high quality mower (preferably a cylinder mower) at least twice a week during the warmer months, however a normal home lawn would generally not be mown any lower than 20mm but areas with low light should be cut higher again.
