The fact that the HGT was a summer patch tolerant variety was very enticing to us. Having the HGT not as susceptible to the summer patch, we still have to apply fungicides against it, but in the back of your head you know you’ve got something that’s a little more disease tolerant.
Under stress from professional soccer, youth soccer, lacrosse and rugby, the HGT never really showed wear.
We had a late soccer match in November here after the (baseball) playoffs. We’d have never had time to get the seed to come up, Findley says, so sodding was the only way to go.
