Origin
Tyee is bred by Seed Research of Oregon in collaboration with Rutgers University (USA).


Colour
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
Seeding rates:
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.


Mowing height
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

Watering
After seeding and establishing Tyee prefers deep watering early in the morning.
