Focus Creeping Bentgrass Seed › Pickseed › Bentgrass ›
Focus creeping bentgrass has demonstrated excellent resistance to dollar spot and other diseases, enabling you to reduce your fungicide applications on greens, tees and fairways. Focus is a product of a PICKSEED and Rutgers cooperative breeding effort, and is the result of many years of development and improvement.
Focus has been bred for versatility and can be used for tees, greens and fairways. It’s aggressive and produces a dense cover, but is not super aggressive so as to get too “puffy” in growth. It has been bred for adaptability and can be blended with other elite bents such as MacKenzie, Ninety-Six Two and other modern varieties. It has a medium dark-green color, with a finer leaf texture and good density.
Futura Blue Seed › Pickseed › General Turf ›
This blend is a combination of Quebéc and Cutter turf type perennial ryegrass, plus Touchdown Kentucky bluegrass, and Quantum Leap Kentucky bluegrass.

The regular addition of bentgrass seed helps in the battle against Poa annua and speeds up recovery from any damage.
Futura Pro Creeping Bentgrass Seed › Pickseed › Bentgrass ›
Futura Pro creeping bentgrass blend is designed to produce superior golf course greens under a range of environmental and maintenance conditions.
Futura Pro combines two top-rated bentgrass varieties from PICKSEED – MacKenzie and Tyee. Research studies have shown that blends often perform better than the individual cultivars alone, because they ensure a broad genetic base that capitalizes on the strengths of the different varieties. These varieties were selected to provide genetic diversity, outstanding turf quality and a uniform playing surface under varying maintenance conditions and environmental stresses.
Garnet Creeping Red Fescue Seed › Pickseed › Fescue ›
An improved creeping red fescue that really spreads.
Garnet is a tough, persistent, endophyte enhanced variety that is well adapted to deep shade, hot summers, lower fertility soils, higher salt conditions, and lower maintenance situations. Garnet has a pleasing dark green color, medium fine leaf texture, and will spread by producing long underground rhizomes and large numbers of basal tillers under favorable conditions. Garnet is very persistent and has improved heat and drought tolerance. It is a semi-dwarf type variety with a medium growth rate.
MacKenzie Creeping Bentgrass Seed › Pickseed › Bentgrass ›
A product of Pickseed research, in cooperation with Rutgers, MacKenzie creeping bentgrass (tested as SRX1 GPD) is Pickseed’s newest variety of creeping bentgrass. MacKenzie was developed as a multi-use variety, to perform well under severe summer stress conditions at green, tee and fairway height.
MacKenzie was developed by Dr. Leah Brilman, working in cooperation with Rutgers. The original clones were selected and screened from plants selected from high stress
environments. All parent material used for MacKenzie was selected to produce deep roots and to thrive under extreme conditions of summer heat and disease stress. After many years of testing and refinement, MacKenzie was entered into the 2003 NTEP trials and demonstrating excellent performance, was released for commercial production in 2006.

Tyee Seed › Pickseed › Bentgrass ›
Ultra Shadegrass Seed › Pickseed › General Turf ›
Turf production in shade is a significant challenge. Most plants need sunlight and even the components of Ultra Shadegrass, while tolerant to reduced light, still have a minimum requirement to carry on photosynthesis. The grasses included in Ultra Shadegrass will produce a dominant Fescue turf. This sward will consist of fine, bristle- like leaves that can become very dense. Generally, a series of seedings over 2 - 5 years may be necessary to obtain satisfactory results and an acceptable turf. Mow at a higher cutting height for best results.
Windward Chewings Fescue Seed › Pickseed › Fescue ›
Windward, (tested as Pick FRC A-93) is an elite new variety of chewings fescue developed at the Pickseed research facility. Windward was thoroughly tested in the 1999-2002 fine fescue NTEP turf trial with excellent results.
Windward is a tough, long lived, endophyte enhanced chewings fescue with excellent adaptation to shade, low fertility and acid soils. It is a 4 clone synthetic variety, with the parent plants selected for outstanding adaptation to severe turf usage conditions in the Northeast and Midwestern U.S. Windward has a combination of color, quality, and disease resistance that is superior to nearly all other commercially available varieties of chewings fescue.
