Renovation and/or construction of elite winter sports pitches. Designed for elite winter sport stadiums and pitches, it focuses on the key characteristics of wear tolerance, recovery, camera-friendly grass colour and disease resistance. ELITE SPORT is changing the game for the renovation and construction of stadium and other highquality pitches.

Top performing varieties Barenbrug’s ELITE SPORT product has been re-formulated for 2022 to include brand new cultivars to the market.

Barzico holds the coveted #1* position, trialled under winter sports wear simulation at 25mm height of cut. The cultivar originates from Barenbrug’s Dutch breeding station and is a very strong all-round ryegrass suitable for many applications. Visually, it is mid-fine, extremely dense (ranked #1 for this trait) with a medium green colour. Barbasten sits directly below Barzico, as #2*. It is a true winter sports cultivar and a “late-heading” variety from the Dutch breeding station. Coarser in the leaf, paler green and exceptionally active in winter/spring recovery, Barbasten brings additional Drechslera leaf spot tolerance to the product. They will be balanced with two well-established top-12 varieties Barcristalla and Europitch, cementing ELITE SPORT as the marketleading grass seed mixture of its type, designed for elite winter sport stadiums and pitches.

Features & benefits Every elite squad should have the perfect combination of characterises. Our ELITE SPORT seed mix blends four of the toughest, most hardwearing perennial ryegrasses into a top performing team.

High wear tolerance and recovery The mixture is formulated primarily on performance in the BSPB/STRI Turfgrass Seed 2022 booklet Table S1 for sporting wear simulation. All four cultivars are ranked in the top-14, and ELITE SPORT has the UK’s highest ‘mixture score’ of 7.8.

Camera-friendly colour Barcristalla is a key variety in ELITE SPORT, with a much darker genetic colour than other top varieties, while Barbasten brings additional Drechslera leaf spot tolerance to the blend and Barzico combines top-rated visual merit and wear tolerance.
