LaGrange, Georgia, United States: Pure Seed and Atlas Turf International are introducing PurePro Seeded Bermudagrass, a blend of the industry’s highest performing hybrid bermudas.
With the goal of delivering the ultimate playing surfaces, PurePro combines the attributes of multiple varieties to produce a fine-textured, dark green, elite blend.
“In partnership with Pure Seed, we are proud to bring to market a new seeded bermudagrass of unmatched quality,” said John Holmes, President of Atlas Turf International, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “PurePro raises the level of performance sports field managers and golf course superintendents can expect from bermudagrass.”
The advantages of PurePro are evident from the beginning. Under optimal conditions, PurePro germinates in seven to 14 days. Quick establishment of a dense, hearty turf means sports fields and golf courses can be ready for play in as few as eight to 12 weeks.
With performance being key, PurePro delivers strength. The deep-rooting, dense turf is extremely traffic tolerant and meets the demands of heavy play. PurePro recovers quickly from injury.
Even the most challenging conditions are no match for PurePro. The blend offers excellent salt tolerance, performing well with all types of water quality. PurePro is also drought, disease and heat tolerant, maintaining its vigour through extreme temperatures.
To further extend play and performance, PurePro delivers early spring green-up and retains colour late into fall. The blend can be overseeded for year-round colour and play. When temperatures rise, its aggressive growth habit allows PurePro to transition quickly out of overseeding.
