Festuca arundinacea

Tall fescue

Input low & expectations high!

Comprehensive disease tolerance

ATBARA is ready for the future with good tolerance to a wide range of diseases: Rust, Drechslera leafspot, red thread and Winter Fusarium. Appreciate the reduced need for fungicides and the positive impact on the environment.

Multi-purpose and convincing

With a top rating for wear tolerance and excellent visual merit both summer and winter, ATBARA will fit for most uses whether sport/game or ornamental. All year round!

Deep-rooted and drought tolerant

No doubt that the excellent visual merit during summer is related to the deep rooting, making ATBARA less vulnerable in dry conditions. Environmentally positive result with less (or no) need for irrigation.


  • Overall high disease tolerance = low input

  • Wear tolerance amongst the best
