Caddieshack II Perennial Ryegrass
Caddieshack II perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) is a good choice when used alone or matched with other Jacklin grasses in mixtures and blends for permanent turf in temperate and transition zone climates. Caddieshack II is adapted to use on golf course fairways, roughs and tees, sports turf, home lawns, parks, and industrial and school sites. Caddieshack II is also adapted to overseeding on dormant bermudagrass in warmer regions. Tested in an overseeding trial on dormant bermudagrass at Toscana Country Club in Indian Wells, CA Caddieshack II displayed good quality, color and density and can be mown down to putting green heights for overseeding.
Bred in North Idaho, Caddieshack II exhibits excellent performance during the winter. It tied for #1 for least winter damage in Minnesota (NTEP 06-1 report). In addition, Caddieshack II had superior winter survival at two locations when many varieties had severe stand loss.
Disease & Pest Resistance
Caddieshack II fights the browning caused by many common turf diseases with its great disease and pest resistance against a broad spectrum of diseases. Caddieshack II exhibits high resistance to brown patch, Bipolaris leaf spot, pythium blight and red thread as well as good resistance to other common turf pests.
Hardy, Wear Resistant Turf
Tested in university wear trials, Caddieshack II’s performance was comparable with the best when put under traffic stress.
Wide Range Adaptation
Caddieshack II with its rich dark green color, medium fine leaf texture and good density has good performance at different maintenance regimes: high, medium and low input; and varying heights of cut. Caddieshack II quickly recuperates from stresses. Great winter color retention color makes it a fine addition to mixtures and blends that will be used late in the season. Caddieshack II performs best under higher maintenance levels and is adapted to mowing heights from 0.5-2 in. (1-5 cm).
