CHARACTERISTICS
007 Creeping Bentgrass is an advanced generation creeping bentgrass variety developed by the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (Rutgers University) working in cooperation with Richard Hurley, Ph.D.
007 Creeping Bentgrass has a broad genetic base developed using twenty four parent plants, including plants identified from the varieties L-93 and Southshore. Additional clones were collected from older greens on high stress golf courses in the north-east USA. This new, improved variety is well adapted to any areas where creeping bentgrass is being utilized for golf course greens, tees and fairways.

USES
Recommended uses for 007 Creeping Bentgrass include seeding or sodding golf course putting greens, tees, and fairways on new and renovated, as well as in over seeding conversions on greens planted to older, poor performing varieties that need to be updated.
This new creeping bentgrass variety adapts well for low mowing on greens, as well as for reduced fungicide management on fairways and tees. Hurley says, “If you liked the performance of our L-93 variety, the new 007 Creeping Bentgrass is even better.”
Enhanced Dollar Spot resistance and superior turf quality make this variety the perfect choice for all levels of golf course projects, especially those located in stressful environments.
All individual parental clones of creeping bentgrass used in the development of 007 were selected for improved Dollar Spot resistance, bright dark green leaf colour, excellent winter colour with no purpling and a vigorous, uniform, moderately dense growth habit.
