LICENSED PREMIERPRO BERMUDAGRASS PRODUCERS CONFIRM SCIENTIFIC FINDINGS:

In making my decision to become a licensed producer of PremierPRO, I looked at several factors and characteristics of the grass. I’ve never seen a bermudagrass in particular that had such a fine texture, deep green color, and high density. And it has a phenomenal rate of establishment.
Alfred Wooten Owner, Quality Turf, Inc., Maple Hill, NC
It has a lot of special qualities that we and, more importantly, our customers are looking for in an elite bermudagrass. It has a beautiful season-long, dark green color. Proven cold weather tolerance. It has a fine leaf texture with low seedhead production. I've noticed fast grow-in on our production field, which would indicate a fast divot recovery in sports applications, too. All of these positive characteristics are confirmed in the NTEP trials. That is why we became a licensed producer.
William Warpinski General Manager at Central Sod Farms of Maryland, Inc.
I’ve been absolutely amazed by it. We planted December 2, 2016. The grass from Virginia was completely dormant—not a green blade of grass in it. It looked like we were planting hay. We started to see green in it by day 10. At day 36, we’re at 70 to 80% coverage, which is just phenomenal.
