Title: Introducing the Scotts® ProVistaTM Program:
 A quantum leap in turfgrass genetics
Christian Baldwin, Ph.D. - Turfgrass Scientist

As a 150 year old company with a strong turfgrass history, the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has led many innovations in turfgrass breeding.  We are excited to add another innovation to the Scotts legacy with the introduction of Scotts® ProVistaTM Kentucky bluegrass cultivars.  These cultivars require half as much mowing compared to conventional turfgrasses through manipulation of the gibberellic acid pathway.  Also, plant processes are unhindered following a glyphosate application due to altering a gene responsible for the binding site of glyphosate.  This presentation will discuss the technology benefits of Scotts® ProVistaTM, which include a reduction in mowing, improved shade tolerance, reduction of fertilizer use, and increased flexibility of controlling grassy weeds.
