DUO BENT is a 100% bentgrass blend designed for overseeding and species exchange in golf and bowling greens. It is of particular interest to golf courses focussed on outcompeting Poa annua at low <3.5mm heights of cut on greens.

 

  • Charles is a new NZ-bred variety of capillaris browntop, named after Bob Charles, the first left-handed golfer to win a major. Like Bob, it breaks new ground, being ranked #1 in Turfgrass Seed 2020 Table G1 - a clear half-point higher than other browntop or creeping bent cultivars! Its scores for visual merit and shoot density promise to have a major impact as part of a species exchange programme, improving golf greens and out-competing the ubiquitous Poa annua.
  • L-93XD is part of the latest generation of stolonifera creeping bentgrass from USA breeding programmes. In the 2018 NTEP trials, it was ranked very highly by Mean Quality, achieving “top-25%” status in almost two-thirds of locations. This compares very favourably with other cultivars present in the UK market (777; Pure Select and Barracuda (Riptide)).
  • Barenbrug recently published results of an extensive four-year trial assessed independently by the STRI, which highlighted the potential benefits of combining creeping and browntop cultivars to outcompete Poa annua.
