  • Provides a super-absorbent and Apron XL fungicide in one package
  • Improved germination with limited water
  • Seedling protection against Pythium sp. for up to three weeks
  • Stronger, more extensive early root development
  • Improved germination with stronger establishment and uniformity


  • More easily controlled for uniform seed application
  • Seed is easier to see during application
  • Heavier seed moves more readily through turf canopy and is less affected from static-electricity

    What is SuperCharged Bentgrass?


    Supercharged Bentgrass was a first ever combination of top-rated bentgrass varieties and Barenbrug's exclusive Yellow Jacket® Enhanced Seed Coating. More recently, Barenbrug and Tee-2-Green have partnered to offer the most advanced and recognized creeping bentgrasses available. Through our exclusive partnership, Barenbrug has supercharged Tee-2-Green bentgrass varieties and blends with Yellow Jacket Enhanced Seed Coating.


    How much better is SuperCharged Bentgrass?


    Independent studies conducted at the University of New Mexico and Ohio State University both concluded that bentgrass coated with Yellow Jacket consistently out-performs uncoated bentgrass in all turf establishment categories such as: germination, seedling disease protection, and plant establishment when compared to uncoated varieties – all while reducing water consumption and establishment costs. 


    At the University of New Mexico, Barenbrug compared Yellow Jacket coated seed with uncoated seed under conditions of both high moisture (96% E.T.) and low moisture (56% E.T.). At 92 days after seeding, coated seed showed an increase of 10 points in percent cover compared to uncoated seed at the high moisture content level. At the low moisture level, coated seed showed an increase of 13 points in percent cover. At Ohio State University, SuperCharged bentgrass even improved percent germination 7 days after seeding compared to uncoated seed. Improved germination and faster establishment are  critical factors in reducing seedling disease pressure, out-competing weeds, and ultimately bringing a bentgrass surface more quickly into play.

    SuperCharged Bentgrass Applications


    Below you will notice the thorough portfolio that SuperCharged Bentgrass can be applied to. From Barenbrug's variety in Bengal, to the Tee-2-Green program, and even our competitors' varieties, there is surely a bentgrass for every type of end user. 



    Bengal is a highly rated creeping bentgrass on the 2003-07 NTEP list. Bengal very high in the NTEP trials for drought-tolerance, spring green-up, fall color retention, and scalping ratings. This variety is a perfect choice in areas where water use is restricted. Bengal is a good bentgrass variety that can provide color early as well as later in the season. The recommended applications for Bengal include tees, fairways, or components of alternative uses like roadsides due to its low cost.
