Wow! That’s Endurant PR giving golf course superintendent Kevin Smith a rich perennial rye look. Due to completely dormant existing turf, Smith chose to apply at a higher than average rate. Endurant PR is often applied to fairways at rates between 6 and 10 gallons per acre. Endurant PR is recommended to be applied on greens at rates of 2 to 5 gallons per acre.

Choosing the application rate is as important as choosing the shade of green. So once you know it’s perennial rye grass colorant that you desire, now you need to select the best application rate. Application rates vary based on many factors including the current shade of grass, current depth of color and desired depth of color. Dormant grass that is completely brown due to drought or dormancy might do better with a higher application rate while grass that is still producing chlorophyl through photosynthesis will have more green color in the grass blade already and may require lower application rates.

Endurant PR’s recommended application rates for fairways range from 6 to 10 gallons per acre. Endurant PR is recommended to be applied on greens at rates of 2 to 5 gallons per acre. Below you see the results of a lower application rate providing a lighter green compared with the higher application rate that provides a brighter green.
