Impact Kentucky Bluegrass
Impact Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis) has been a consistent top‐10 performer in consecutive National tests for its outstanding turf quality and pest resistance. You can have confidence that Impact will perform for you.
The “Jack‐of‐All‐Trades” Variety
Impact is one of the very few Kentucky bluegrasses that offers super performance under a wide variety of demanding turf conditions – from ultra‐ close fairway/tee height mowing to carefree home lawns. In university test trials it beat nearly every other bluegrass variety on the market in the US/Canadian Northeast, Midwest, Great Plains, Mountains, and Transition Zone. Turf managers all around the world have discovered that Impact is tops with them as well.
Resists Most Diseases
Impact fights the browning caused by many common lawn diseas‐ es with its built‐in pest resistance. In North American university trials, Impact ranked high against Microdochium and Fusarium pink snow mold, spring melting out, leaf spot, leaf rust, dollar spot, anthracnose, and summer patch. Better resistance means fewer chemicals and a greener turf all year ‘round.
High Sod Tensile Strength
Impact had 25% better sod strength than other Kentucky blues in a Univ. of Maryland study, and 44% better strength in a Univ. of Nebraska study. Higher sod strength means a better quality product, less wastage, faster turn‐around.
Dense Turf from Spring to Fall
Impact earned top honors in density and ground coverage in university test trials. Impact was one of the 11 densest varieties in the spring, 3 densest in the summer, and 4 densest in the fall out of 173 tested. Its aggressive nature helps crowd out invading annual bluegrass (Poa annua), ranking it as one of the most resistant varieties to Poa.
While many elite Kentucky bluegrasses are somewhat slow to sprout, Impact germinates quickly and reliably. In university germination trials, it beat out 158 competing varieties for fastest emergence.
