    Jacklin seed has the top KBG varieties according to NTEP.

    Midnight, Northstar, Moonglow, Limousine--sod quality stuff. Do not blend with cheaper seed or ryegrass for best results. For top quality--get sod. Try to find the same sod as used on the nearest major league baseball field.

    Do a web search for Jacklin Seed and then do a web search for NTEP.org
