HOW BARENBRUG SPORT RPR SPORT WORKS

  • Mixture formulated from dedicated UK Cropvale wear trials with objective DIA scoring; wear tolerance with other benefits.
  • Barlibro RPR delivers fast establishment and unparalleled capacity for recovery from wear due to stoloniferous growth habit.
  • Barcristalla and Barorlando give superior colour and Drechslera leaf spot tolerance.

RPR SPORT DELIVERS ON FOUR KEY TRAITS

Four years of dedicated wear trials at our research station Cropvale in Worcestershire, together with close analysis of BSPB Turfgrass Seed and the official French list as well as data from our breeding stations across the globe has delivered a blend focused on four key traits for high performance pitches – wear tolerance, dark genetic colour, (Drechslera) disease tolerance and recovery.

The wear trials at Cropvale are run annually in line with the football season and are assessed via an objective method called Digital Image Analysis (DIA). A camera box takes images of trial plots on a monthly basis and DIA enables the production of extremely accurate data on both wear tolerance and genetic colour for both cultivars and critically, mixture formulations.

BSPB/STRI Turfgrass Seed 2020 data supports the Cropvale Research. Barcristalla and Barorlando are ranked #11 and #16, respectively, for mean performance under wear and #2 and #1 for autumn colour (in the top-80 varieties).

Baribro is a Regenerating Perennial Ryegrass (RPR) that produces stolons as it establishes and grows. Figure 3 shows a Barlibro plant grown from a single seed at 15 months old.

Barenbrug’s aim is to produce all grass seed to the Higher Voluntary Standard (HVS), which is unique to the UK guaranteeing a higher level of purity than European Union (EU) Standards.

When seeding your lawn, adding a pre-seeder before and after can significantly encourage the growth in your turf. click here to add this to your order.
