Jackpot Kentucky Bluegrass
Jackpot Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis) competes with BMVG and Mid‐Atlantic type varieties but it is newer and shows better turf qualities. Jackpot is a cost saving variety with pleasing medium‐fine leafed, medium‐ green color and with superior seedling vigor.
Jackpot jumps off to a quicker start than many Kentucky bluegrasses with its faster germination and establishment. With ideal soil temperatures and consistent irrigation, tests have shown Jackpot to germinate in under 10 days!
Great Turf Characteristics
Jackpot also exhibits excellent wear ability under traffic stress. Jackpot was bred for tolerance against many strains of rust and powdery mildew. It performs on heavy soils with moderate fertility. Jackpot offers excellent turf quality at a lower price, and is a good fit to blend with elite Jacklin 5‐Steps Above™ varieties for sod and landscape.

2‐3 lbs./1000 ft.2 (10‐15 g/m2 ) by itself or blended with other bluegrasses. Mix Jackpot with 20% ryegrass or 80% tall fescue.
