SF Oasis

General Fit

SF Oasis is a new soft leaf cocksfoot from the RAGT program that has produced SF Greenly and SF Lazuly. SF Oasis is slightly later flowering but maintains similar persistence to existing Seed Force cocksfoot varieties. It also has improved rust resistance over Greenly & Lazuly. It has been selected after strong performance in Australian trials at Armidale and Warrnambool and is performing similarly in other long term trials still to be released.
