Characteristics:

Aggressive Against Poa: at Jacklin Seed, every bentgrass strain is tested against Poa annua. If it doesn't hold up, it doesn't continue in our program. The plants that went into Alpha excelled at keeping Poa at bay. In fact, they made visible gains against Poa every year.

 

Tournament-Quality: Alpha provides tournament-quality turf for every golf course and is forgiving when climate or cultural practices are not ideal.

 

Retains Fall Color: In NTEP trails, compared against other commercial and experimental varieties, Alpha was rated #1 in fall color in both September and October.
