* Information About PennCross Creeping Bent Grass

  • PennCross competes with Poa annua on putting greens, tees and fairways. PennCross breeding began with 156 vegetatively propagated bentgrasses and was later reduced to 21. These were crossed for turf performance, and the components were tested under a wide variety of locations in the U.S. and Canada. Results show that PennCross has wide adaptability, tight, upright growth characteristics and fine leaf texture.

  • Climatic Zones: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 (may not be adaptable to all areas within each zone) (These are not USDA zones, these are zone number provided by Pennington Seed, please use their map below for correct location for these zones)

Planting & Maintaining Penncross Creeping Bent Grass

Plant the seed, using a spreader, to make good seed to soil contact and keep seedlings moist until well rooted. Germination will take place in 7 - 15 days, depending on soil temperatures, and the first mowing may be expected within 30 days, or when the plants have sufficiently rooted. Mow at a 3/4 inch (19.1 mm) height of cut or lower until turf is established. Limited use of the area can be expected in 6 weeks. PennCross performs best in soils with a pH of 5.5 to 8 so you should test your soil's pH. It has a moderate nitrogen requirement with 1 - 2 pounds of actual N per 1,000 square feet per year, adequate in most situations. Optimum greens mowing height for PennCross is 3/16 - 5/16 inch (4.8 - 7.9 mm) but can be adjusted higher or lower depending upon maintenance practices and intended use. PennCross performs best on sandy soils and tolerates clay soils with adequate drainage. Bentgrasses normally do not perform well in wet areas; however, PennCross can tolerate saturated soil conditions for short periods of time.
