MacKenzie creeping bentgrass is a high quality turfgrass for greens, tees and fairways and is bred from stress-tolerant germplasm. It has high density through all seasons, winter-active growth, bright medium green colour and a fine leaf texture. In addition, MacKenzie has a reduced fertiliser requirement and high resistance to dollar spot, brown patch and Fusarium patch.
- Excellent year-round performance
- Uniform putting surface

- Reduced ball marks
MacKenzie creeping bentgrass was developed in line with the demands faced by the modern superintendent who has to blend the classical aspects of the game with the contemporary surface. MacKenzie’s broad genetic base provides performance insurance regardless of the environment or the maintenance regime. MacKenzie is the result of years of experience in breeding superior bentgrasses that meet the needs of superintendents for a outstanding surface, in balance with standard maintenance practices.
For new turf, sow at 5-7.5g/m2 (50-75kg/ha). For over-seeding, sow at 2.5-3g/m2 (25-30kg/ha). In ideal conditions, MacKenzie will emerge 3-5 days (6-10 days in cooler weather) after sowing and full cover is achieved after 8 weeks.
