A highlight at Saltex will be the launch by Barenbrug of its new product range for the professional sports market, the latest result of years of investment in their own grass breeding, research, trials and production. The launch builds on Barenbrug’s well known sports range which is already in wide use at Premier League stadiums, top-ranked golf courses and tennis courts, as well as local clubs and schools.
“The grass choice for grounds managers at the top football and rugby stadiums has not changed for a while now, with the same varieties in many different products” points out Luke Hunt, Barenbrug’s Product Manager. “We are breaking that mould for 2022, with our top performing grasses bred for premium sport stadiums, pitches and courses, and produced in the UK. It is a real game changer in the market.”
Details of the new product range will be announced on Barenbrug’s stand, G055, at the show. Their team will be on hand, ready to discuss the individual needs of ground managers.
Specialising entirely on developing innovative UK grass seed solutions, Barenbrug UK is now recognised as the leading grass seed breeder and grower in the UK. As part of the wider Barenbrug Group, grass experts since 1904, their worldwide research and plant genetics network includes dedicated UK trials of amenity varieties and mixtures, providing a solid testing ground while drawing on knowledge and expertise from across the globe.
