PENNCROSS

PENNCROSSbentgrass

After 60 years, Penncross creeping bentgrass is still the most specified and most widely used and trusted bentgrass in the world. Along with providing a smooth surface for putting greens, its aggressive lateral growth and ability to recover quickly makes Penncross bent grass variety a great choice for use on tees and landing areas. Penncross is exclusively a first-generation cross of three vegetative clones, which are planted by hand in Oregon. The parent material, developed by Dr. Musser, is still maintained at Penn State University, where it is not allowed to flower, and vegetative stolons are air expressed to Oregon, to plant new fields of Penncross.
