The Alliance for Low Input Sustainable Turf (A-LIST) added creeping bentgrass to its list of approved turfgrass species and included three of DLF’s Super Bents varieties: 007XL, 777 (Triple Seven) and Macdonald.

The A-LIST is a nonprofit organization that conducts independent trials across the U.S. to identify and certify the best-performing turfgrass varieties under reduced inputs.

“Recognizing the need for reduced inputs for the next generation of creeping bentgrasses is helpful to golf course superintendents and architects who are planning new constructions and course renovations”, said Leah Brilman, Ph.D., director of product management for DLF. “The newer genetics provide significant benefits to end users and the environment.”

The approval adds to DLF’s 21 offerings approved by A-LIST, including:

  • Creeping bentgrasses – 007XL, 777, Macdonald
  • Tall fescues – Fayette, Grande 3, Nightcrawler, Raceway, Rebounder, Rhizing Moon
  • Kentucky bluegrasses – Jackrabbit, Mercury, SR 2150, SR 2284, Martha
  • Perennial ryegrasses – AllStar Fore, Banfield, Sideways, SR 4700, Thrive
  • Fine fescues – Chantilly, Quatro, Ruddy, SR 3150, SR 5130
