Context

As the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia draws closer, DLF – a leading producer and distributor of grass seed – has been working with the hosts to deliver the top-quality, green, hardwearing natural turf surfaces that are expected of one of the world's premier sporting events.

Products supplied

DLF mixtures were selected for most of the 12 stadiums, as well as two-thirds of the training pitches and base camps.

All of the World Cup stadiums will have been over-seeded during the Spring with perennial ryegrass, with most venues using mixtures containing traditional diploid perennials and 4turf varieties, which are only available from DLF.

About 4turf

4turf tetraploid perennial ryegrasses germinate faster than traditional varieties, having been developed especially for rapid installation and unique stress tolerance. They are especially suited to colder climates, exhibiting fast and strong establishment at soil temperatures as low as 3°C.

For groundsmen in the UK looking to take advantage of the same technology, 4turf is available in a number of Johnsons Sports Seed mixtures, including J Pitch, J 4Turf and J Rescue Stadia.
