Piranha Creeping Bentgrass
Piranha is a new creeping bentgrass variety developed specifically to tolerate heat and a number of other stressors that destroy tees and greens resulting in costly repairs. Piranha was bred to excel in high heat conditions that so easily destroy other lesser varieties.
Progeny tests were conducted across multiple sites and locations to identify deep rooted, stress resistance germplasm. Piranha was then selected for improved turf quality and seed yield. In addition, Piranha has also shown excellent disease resistance to dollar spot and brown patch.
