Chewings, SR5130

SR 5130 is a new Chewings fescue that is the culmination of years of cooperative research between Rutgers University and Seed Research of Oregon. SR 5130 traces its origins back to twelve clones selected at Rutgers University for its improved turf performance, including color, density, stress, and disease resistance. Progeny of those clones were sent to Seed Research of Oregon’s research facility where further screening was done for higher seed yield, color, and improved stress and disease resistance in the production environment.
