Adaptations and Use
Fielder should be included whether you are planting or repairing a sports field, a home lawn, a golf course fairway or rough. Fielder was developed from the cross Shamrock x America and has the advantages of both of these landmark cultivars. Deep, extensive rhizomes for great shear strength and recovery, with persistence under different types of management are hallmarks of Fielder. Fielder has excellent winter color and greens up early in the spring for a longer growing season. It also tolerates a low light intensity. The early rhizome formation of Fielder enables sod growers to harvest sooner.
