Browntop bentgrass forms very few short stolons and rhizomes and produces a dense turf. Well adapted to cool and humid regionsm fertilem fine textyured, moist and slightly acid to neutral soils (pH 5,6-7,0) are best. It doesn’t like dry, hot soil conditions. On sandy soils it will dominate, especially with a good Nitrogen fertilization. Blended with Red fescues, the best varietes of Browntop bent provide a green turf which performs better than creeping bentgrass. Such mixtures need less fertilization, scarifying or chemical usage and diseases. Brountop bent can be mown very closely (golf green) and shows an excellent recovery. Temperate single turf species.
Notes: Adatta alla formazione di tappeti fini. Raramente produce stoloni. Resiste bene al freddo ed alla bassa rasatura, non sopporta l'aridità per cui richiede frequenti irrigazioni. Dose d'impiego kg 100/ha.
