Royal Bengal Turf-Type Bermudagrass (exp. PSG-9BAN) (Cynodon dactylon) was developed with high turf quality and unique genetics to increase the adaptation of bermudagrass in the United States and the World. The bermudagrass genus has centers of origin in Africa, Indian subcontinent and China. Most cultivars originate from African germplasm with a few recent ones tracing back to China. Royal Bengal uniquely comes from material selected in the Indian subcontinent from Bangladesh. Royal Bengal exhibits high turf quality across a range of environments. Tropical to arid and up to the Transition zone it has shown good performance. It has shown moderate cold tolerance and good resistance to Spring Dead Spot. It tolerates high heat, drought and saline conditions. Royal Bengal has high density with aggressive stolons and rhizomes. The high density helps prevent weed invasion.

Royal Bengal can be used for sports fields, home lawns, parks, schools and golf course tees and fairways. Its rapid establishment makes it excellent for repairing damaged areas, in seeded or vegetative bermudagrasses.
