as Pick 66B-08) has been tested extensively in overseeded turf trials
in Texas and Arizona. TransAm is an excellent blend partner with other
perennial ryegrasses such as Express II, NightSky and Fiesta 4 in the
popular Futura 2500 blend. Alone, you can use TransAm as a short - lived
nursegrass in the North, and an elite overseeding grass in the south.
It has good salt tolerance, and is recommended for areas using effluent
is highly recommended for use in overseeding southern golf course
fairways and roughs. Winter performance is similar to good varieties of
perennial ryegrass. Use it alone or as a 20 - 40% component blended with
perennial ryegrass. It is also excellent for overseeding sports fields.
SEEDING AND ESTABLISHMENT:
germinates faster than perennial ryegrasses, particularly in cooler
conditions. PICKSEED recommends a seeding rate of 10 - 15 lbs. / 1000
sq. ft. in the north. For overseeded southern golf course roughs, 10 -
20 lbs. of TransAm / 1000 sq. ft. gives best results. In normal
circumstances, you can expect germination in 4 - 6 days.
TransAm in the same manner as perennial ryegrass. It will establish
more quickly in the fall under cooler conditions than perennial
TransAm has been bred to
disappear smoothly and quickly in the late spring as bermudagrass is
ready to grow. When blended with perennial rye, the TransAm will exit
first, opening up the turf canopy to sunlight which benefits
bermudagrass, allowing it to green up and grow
