The production of certified seed of Kenblue, a new Kentucky-grown bluegrass, may start this fall. It will be the first time a Kentucky-grown bluegrass of what the scientists call "known origin" is available to farmers and home owners.
It will be much more desirable for Kentucky use than the other standard varieties such as Merion, Delta, or Newport. All of these are considered "good" varieties, but not under Kentucky conditions. These are more susceptible to diseases than the new variety, Kenblue.
