Advanced Seed Royal Bengal is a premium quality couch grass that has excellent seedling vigour and early establishment. It has high turf density which reduces weed invasion. It is ideal for sports fields, golf fairways and general lawn areas.

It has excellent winter colour retention and high frost tolerance, making it the perfect choice for areas with mild winters to keep a green surface without oversowing.
