El Toro Zoysia
El Toro Zoysia has a medium-width leaf blade similar to Meyer Zoysia (Z-52), however it has a far superior establishment rate. It has an early spring green-up, and it’s aggressive lateral growth and ability to recover from injury makes it an ideal selection for shaded, high traffic areas on golf courses, home lawns and athletic fields where Bermuda grass isn’t suitable. It has a dark green color, excellent shade tolerance and requires less fertilizer and mowing than bermuda grass.
It has superior tolerance to Zoysia Rust. It is also much more drought tolerant than Meyer Zoysia, making it an excellent choice for low maintenance areas. It can tolerate mowing heights from ½ inch to 3 inches. This is an excellent all-around turfgrass with many practical uses for golf courses, home lawns, and utility turf areas.
