The grass has to be beautiful and tough, when these massive sporting events are being transmitted to millions of football fans across the globe. The grass from DLF has proven that it is up to the task, as it has been in the last three World Cups, in South Africa, Brazil and Russia.

DLF’s champion of grass, 4turf® has already won, even before the football stars have laced their boots and head out to fight for glory and gold in the men’s biggest and second biggest club finals - and the Women’s World Cup.

Innovative second generation turfs of champions
The secret behind the successful sportsturf is to be found in the plant breeding. Where traditional ryegrass has two sets of chromosomes, 4turf® has four sets. This boost’s the seed size and result in a faster establishment on the turf.

High stress tolerance, increased strength and deeper rooting are some of the key features of this turf-type. This makes 4turf® exceptionally resistant when it comes to drought and fungal diseases, and the grass requires less irrigation. This ensures that the grass is better qualified for the most demanding venues around the globe.
The deep rooting systems ensure that the 4turf® grass is among the best and strongest varieties for sporting events, additionally, it makes it harder to wear down, as it regenerates faster.
