Bent With Yellow Jacket Coating:
Independent studies conducted at the University of New Mexico and Ohio State University both concluded that bentgrass coated with Yellow Jacket consistently out-performs uncoated bentgrass in all turf establishment categories such as: germination, seedling disease protection, and plant establishment when compared to uncoated varieties – all while reducing water consumption and establishment costs.
At the University of New Mexico, Barenbrug compared Yellow Jacket coated seed with uncoated seed under conditions of both high moisture (96% E.T.) and low moisture (56% E.T.). At 92 days after seeding, coated seed showed an increase of 10 points in percent cover compared to uncoated seed at the high moisture content level. At the low moisture level, coated seed showed an increase of 13 points in percent cover. At Ohio State University, SuperCharged bentgrass even improved percent germination 7 days after seeding compared to uncoated seed. Improved germination and faster establishment are critical factors in reducing seedling disease pressure, out-competing weeds, and ultimately bringing a bentgrass surface more quickly into play.
Yellow Jacket® Enhanced Seed Coating is made from a super absorbent starch based product which is capable of holding up to 600 times its weight in water. Yellow Jacket also contains Apron XL fungicide, designed to protect vulnerable seed and emerging root hairs from several fungal diseases.
