What does it take to classify as a member of the SUPER BENTS?

Only an advanced generation, highly refined bentgrass variety, bred for genetically enhanced disease resistance and scientifically designed for use on closely maintained golf greens, fairways and tees can obtain classification as "One of the SUPER BENTS™."

The elite, environmentally-friendly turf performance of SUPER BENTS™ are the result of meticulous testing by Seed Research of Oregon and DLF Pickseed that exceeds all industry standards and removes undesirable weeds and crop like Poa annua and Poa trivialis.
