DescriptionSure Shot R incorporates the same varieties of bluegrasses that are in the Sure Shot Bluegrass Blend along with 10% fine leaf perennial ryegrass. The ryegrass is added for quick cover to help the bluegrass establish. The amount used, however, is not enough to compete with the establishment of the Kentucky Bluegrasses, provided a mowing height of 3/4 “ is maintained during establishment. The close mowing program will shock the ryegrass and open the leaf canopy a little longer enabling the smaller bluegrass plants to establish.
