Tyee is the new creeping bentgrass leader in performance on greens. Tyee is derived from plants that survived the test of time to thrive under heat and stress. Due to extra turf density Tyee gives better performance in summer and winter and help to keep Poa annu away. . No matter what your heavy season is, Tyee will withstand the pressure and keep growing and performing.
- Highly competitive against Poa annua.
- Extra density in all seasons.
- High wear tolerance - every season.
- Heat tolerance.
- Winter active growth.
- Bright, dark true green colour.
- Dollar spot and Brown Patch resistance.
Tyee is bred by Seed Research of Oregon in collaboration with Rutgers University (USA).
Bright dark true green turf type.
Characteristics of the cultivar
Tyee possesses a bright, dark true green colour, not a blue green like many of the creeping bentgrasses that are on the market. It maintains this colour through the heat of summer and into winter. Tye has shown superior Brown Patch and Dollar Spot resistance. It has also demonstrated excellent resistance to Pythium Root Rot and high resistance to Pink Snow Mold.
Sowing and maintenance
Tyee is recommended to be used in pure stands and creeping bentgrass blends. For new courses Tyee should be seeded at 5 - 7 gr/m2. For overseeding a sowing rate of 2 - 5 gr/m2 should be applied.
Tyee requires frequent mowing and should be mowed at a low height. Recommended mowing heights are:
Greens 2.5 - 6 mm
Tees 6 - 10 mm
Fairways 10 - 12 mm
After seeding and establishing Tyee prefers deep watering early in the morning.
