Athletic Pro II Kentucky Bluegrass/Perennial Ryegrass Mix
Athletic Pro II is tailored to athletic fields, playgrounds, golf course roughs, or other high traffic areas that receive less-than-optimal maintenance, where superior quality and long-term durability are desired. Athletic Pro II performs well at 1.5-3 inch (40-75 mm) mowing heights and should be maintained above 2 inches (5 cm) under restricted moisture and fertility prog rams.
Athletic Pro II is a Jacklin quality mixture of 50% new generation perennial ryegrasses (Lolium perenne) and 50% Kentucky bluegrasses (Poa pratensis).
The bluegrasses in Athletic Pro II are combined for wear tolerance, vigorous recuperative ability, and broad based disease resistance while maintaining high summer density. These varieties exhibit excellent seedling vigor and sod forming characteristics for superior performance in new establishment and overseeding programs.
Perennial ryegrasses provide rapid establishment, excellent wear resistance and recuperative ability, plus a unique combination of superior winter hardiness and transition zone adaptation. The perennial ryegrasses are endophyte enhanced for excellent persistence and insect resistance. They also feature good spring green-up and resistance to pink snow mold, net blotch, and dollar spot.
