Piranha is a new creeping bentgrass variety developed specifically
to tolerate heat and a number of other stressors that destroy tees
and greens resulting in costly repairs. Piranha was bred to excel in
high heat conditions that so easily destroy other lesser varieties.
Progeny tests were conducted across multiple sites and locations
to identify deep rooted, stress resistance germplasm. Piranha was
then selected for improved turf quality and seed yield. In addition
Piranha has also shown excellent disease resistance to dollar spot
and brown patch.
