PASPALUM VAGINATUM MARINA
It is a warm-season grass (C4) forming a dense, fine textured turf. A minimum temperature of 18°C in
the soil is needed for germination. It goes dormant below 4°C, depending on crop management. It
displays rhizomatous and stoloniferous growth habit. Its greatest strength is its outstanding salt
tolerance compared to other bermuda varieties. However, its difficult management and care makes
it unpreferable unless absolutely necessary.

- Fine leaf texture
- Resistant to Spring Dead Spot, Dollar Spot and Brown Patch.

- Calcium and Manganese fertilizers should be used careful especially during establishment period.

Use: Salty areas. Reclaimed water irrigation areas, football fields, racetracks, tees, fairways, rough,
public and private lawns. Should be sown alone with temperatures above 18°C in the soil.
