Why Water Star® qualified grass seed?

Water conservation is important as the demand for water rises, causing concern for depleting resources.  The use of water is often criticized for "non-essential" applications like maintaining residential lawns and other non-agricultural uses. To combat this growing concern, it is imperative that researchers work to introduce grasses that can survive under reduced or limited water, while maintaining overall good plant health.

Pennington Seed developed the Water Star® qualifications to identify grass which provides true water conservation benefits. Consumers can rest assured that any Pennington grass seed product bearing the Water Star® has been through rigorous testing by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA) to meet the most stringent set of criteria.
