60% perennial ryegrass 40% annual ryegrass


Designed for emergency mid-season turf repair, aiming for the fastest possible germination, establishment and growth in cool temperatures.


The saviour of the winter season, this specially formulated product contains varieties that germinate and establish quickly to resurrect high traffic areas on any pitch. In recent trials, SOS was shown to establish and restore a sward overseeded in January at a soil temperature of 6.2°C, from 20% to more than 60% within a month.

Barterra is an annual ryegrass that will germinate as low as 3.5°, quicker and at lower temperatures than perennial ryegrass, including tetraploid varieties.

Bardorado and Barolympic provide a longer-term solution with good performance characteristics. Both varieties exhibit excellent low temperature germination in trials when compared against other perennial ryegrass varieties.

Figure 1 illustrates the speed at which SOS can establish and restore a sward when it is overseeded in January at a soil temperature of 6.2°C. One month into the trial the grass cover has recovered from 20% to more than 60%.

Barenbrug research favours the use of a hard-wearing diploid perennial rather than a tetraploid alternative as a partner to annual ryegrasses for winter grass seed mixtures.
