A high shoot density provides a more uniform surface for ball roll on golf course putting greens, promotes a better golf ball lie on fairway-height turf, and impedes invasion from annual bluegrass, moss, and algae. In previous work at Iowa State University, an Ajinomoto USA, Inc. product resulted in consistently and significantly higher shoot densities when applied to a mature sod of Penncross creeping bentgrass.
