Are your fairways filled with bare spots or patches of thin turfgrass? Have erratic weather conditions taken a toll? Maybe your current turfgrass requires too much maintenance because it’s no longer the best choice for your climate or water quality. If you see damage, it may be the perfect opportunity to try a new variety of turfgrass.
But when is there ever a good time to renovate the course? Add in all of the downtime needed for sodding and grow-in, plus the disruption to playing surfaces… the lost revenue alone could be costly.
Interseeding is the answer. It’s a cost-effective, convenient solution for turfgrass conversion that requires minimal disruption. The process is simple: When verticutting and topdressing, a new variety of seed is broadcast on the playing surface. Interseeding is a great way to improve turf quality as well as overall course conditions. Over time, the new grass will grow and spread to become the dominant turf on greens, fairways, and tees – wherever you want. By interseeding with improved varieties, playing surfaces will become more disease resistant and tolerant of climate extremes plus the course will recover faster from divots and wear.
When’s the right time to interseed? Anytime turf surfaces are groomed throughout the growing season, there’s an opportunity to introduce an improved seed. It’s a small but very effective and economical step in your topdressing program.
One variety we especially recommend is Atlas Turf ‘s Pure Dynasty® Seeded Paspalum. It has been specially developed by Pure-Seed Testing for increasing density on golf greens, tees, fairways, roughs – even sports fields. This improved seeded paspalum delivers tight density, quick germination and establishment. You’ll notice earlier spring green-up and stronger overall performance.
When replacing older paspalum varieties, Pure Dynasty turfgrass provides:
- improve disease resistance
- finer leaf blade
- tighter canopy
- better density
When replacing bermudagrass varieties, Pure Dynasty turfgrass provides:
- superior salt tolerance
- improved shade and low light tolerance
- better wear resistance
