College Station, Texas
Latitude 36™ initially performed for Texas A&M athletics on the baseball field, and its success led to the decision to also install it on the football, soccer, and softball facilities. Latitude was chosen because of its excellent cold tolerance, ability to hold color late into the season, and how much better it transitions out of rye than 419. Additionally, it amazed the staff how well it recovered from damage. Beyond its performance, the Texas A&M staff appreciates the fine texture, density, and vibrant color of Latitude 36. Kyle Field, where the Aggies play football in front of over 100,000 during home games, was sprigged at 1,200 bushels per acre inside the hash marks, and 600 bushels per acre outside the hash marks. In just 30 days they were covered and ready to go. Players, coaches, and fans agree that Latitude 36 is a winner for Texas A&M.
“A beautiful, vibrant green color, nice texture, good density and from the first day it went down our players and coaches said they loved it. The one thing we were really sold on was the transition from rye to Bermuda. I think that’s our best selling point on this grass. It allows me to sleep at night.“
