Do you remember when I wrote about Atlas Turf and Golf Saudi will develop the region’s first internationally licensed golf and sports turf farm in Saudi Arabia?
I also wrote that Atlas Turf Arabia will develop and distribute some of the world’s most climatically adapted turf species throughout Saudi Arabia, starting with Platinum TE™ Paspalum in the first instance, with both Bermudagrass and Zoysia to follow in due course.
This time I can tell you, Platinum TE Paspalum recently issued production and distribution licenses to two international turf farms.
Novogreen in Spain and Atlas Turf Arabia in Saudi Arabia are the first turf farms outside of the United States to grow the patented turfgrass showcased this month at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.
Novogreen, headquartered in Seville, Spain, recently added Platinum TE Paspalum to its Toledo farm with plans to expand to its other farm location in Tarragona.
Novogreen has nearly 20 years of experience in sod production and sports installation supplying quality turfgrass to golf courses, sports fields, parks, and other landscaping projects. They are members of the European Turfgrass Producers and Turf Producers International.
In the Mediterranean region, Novogreen found Platinum TE Paspalum to be an optimally performing turfgrass for the climate and the conditions.
Platinum TE Paspalum meets sustainability goals with low input requirements, thrives in the Mediterranean summers with excellent heat and drought tolerance, and keeps its dark green color longer during the region’s cooler months.
In addition, durability, density, and quick recovery make the turfgrass an attractive choice for the many athletic fields Novogreen supplies.
