will speak to you about a grass developped at the point

is about the PROCESS OF CULTURE IN PLATES of innovating
ZOYSIA TENUIFOLIA produced and exception:
When I discovered ZOYSIA TENUIFOLIA I immediately
thought that it was a fabulous plant.
immediately understood that it offered many resources.
This Plant is so particular and so interesting that it
leaves the ordinary one.
After many research, investigations and much of money
invested during years, I developed this grass in plates
which makes it possible to save water and maintenance
and which can thus replace the grass traditional
especially in the dry zones but as well sure in the
Zoysia Tenuifolia represents at one time when water
becomes and will become the XXI century old gold an
considerable advance in the capacity of development of
the green areas.
This new type of grass will make it possible to solve
problems of installation and management.
deposited a patent on the process of cultures and the
methodology of obtaining this grass in plates.
The sale of licences under patents will allow the
development of this technology.
Many countries will be able to thus use this grass of

zones taking into account the research solution durable
with the water deficits.
must make known this grass so that it can develop with
its right value.
This grass is indeed currently best market for its

to the dryness, which has an incredible robustness and
which is most beautiful.
Indeed, a lawn in Zoysia tenuifolia, it is a saving in
water from at least 50%, and this water can even be
salted. In period of strong heat, two monthly water
saturations are enough to preserve at the plant its
normal green aspect. Shearings are also decreased: 2 to
3 per annum of green areas use, reduce by half of
From where a total reduction in the annual costs of
maintenance grace also to a reduction of the labour.
Zoysia tenuifolia they is also less nitrate fertilizers
(the quantity used is divided at least by 2 or 3,
therefore less pollution of the ground water. It also
contributes to the safeguard of the environment by
authorizing a becoming green of the difficult zones as
well as an installation of the arid regions.
Zoysia tenuifolia is a plant which develops in climates
oceanic, Mediterranean, semi-arid and desert.
This graminaceous has a very soft foliage, and very end.
This graminaceous turfing strongly will compete with and
replace all the traditional grasses and will allow
finally the establishment of grass in very dry zones
