Pro Sports Field Saline Professional Turfgrass Mixture

Professional Turfgrass Mixture


A mixture of three elite perennial ryegrass varieties that have been naturally bred for salt tolerance and Transcontinental improved bermudagrass. The ryegrass varieties in this mixture have demonstrated tolerance as high as 10,000 ppm salinity with plant survival ranging from 78 to 80 percent.




Salt tolerance Tolerates effluent water or moderate salinity conditions
High density seeded bermudagrass Improved traffic tolerance
Fine texture Outstanding turf quality of seeded bermudagrasses
Dark blue-green color Less fertilizer needed
High endophyte level High resistance to above ground insects
Better heat and drought tolerance Improved summer performance
Improved mowability Reduced leaf shredding during mowing
Rye & Bermuda combination All year playability and green color


High traffic areas including:
Golf Courses, Sportsfields, Cemetaries, Parks, Commercial developments, Residential lawns

Because of its improved texture and density, "Pro Sportsfield Saline" may be seeded into established stands of seeded bermuda and some hybrid bermudas to improve overall performance.

LSD Value



To determine whether a cultivar's performance is truly different from another, subtract one entry's mean from another entry's mean. If this value is larger than the LSD value, the observed difference in cultivar performance is significant and did not happen by chance.
