Introduced in 2007 by noted plant scientist Ron R. Duncan, PhD, Platinum TE™ was patented as a premium Paspalum turf grass. Known for its unsurpassed playability and appearance, Platinum TE™ offers a darker green color for exceptional striping, better disease resistance, and superior salt tolerance. The Paspalum is certified and licensed and is in use at more than 230 locations worldwide, including golf courses at every level of play, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, rugby stadiums, and American football facilities.

Platinum TE™ Paspalum will be seen by soccer fans all over the world during the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The premium turf grass has been chosen as the playing surface for all stadiums and training sites for the international tournament.
