Falcon IV tall fescue turf is a new and improved, heat and disease resistant, tall fescue variety developed for superior turf quality across a wide area of adaptation. Falcon IV tall fescue turf is dark green in color, fine textured with excellent wear tolerance. This tall fescue exhibits a unique combination of traits including dense growth, improved turf quality and resistance to Brown Patch incited by Rhizoctonia solani.

Falcon IV tall fescue turf is an endophyte enhanced tall fescue with >92% Neotyphodium coenophialum endophyte which provides resistance to a number of leaf and crown feeding insects and nematodes. The presence of endophyte also contribute to improved biotic and abiotic stress tolerance, faster seedling establishment, enhanced fall recovery and reduced summer weed invasion.
