It was developed to provide golf course superintendents who overseed with a denser and darker green turf. Sabre III has shown improved overall turf quality in comparison to older varieties.

Sabre III was developed for elite, rapid to establish, easy transitioning winter overseeding turfgrass mixtures. It's also recommended for cool season, shade tolerant, mild climatic zones. It has excellent shade tolerance.

  • Recommended for wet, shady areas
  • Used in Shady Supreme
