Usage

INDEPENDENCE 1 was especially bred for the low mowing heights of golf course greens, but as it has very flexible mowing heights it can also be used for bowling greens, golf tees, fairways, croquet lawns and tennis courts.

General appearance

INDEPENDENCE 1 creeping bentgrass is a completely new, cutting edge creeping bentgrass. It ranks with the new elite bentgrasses and delivers higher overall turf quality than the old standards.

INDEPENDENCE 1 is an upright, aggressive, dense variety that establishes quickly, is highly resistant to Poa annua invasion, and will recover quickly from ball marks and divots.

INDEPENDENCE 1 develops a dense, fine textured turf without developing excessive thatch. INDEPENDENCE 1 was developed in the USA for use under close mowing situations. INDEPENDENCE 1 will be the ultimate choice for new construction or reconstruction projects.
