MIXTURE: 100% Perennial ryegrass
Renovation and/or construction of elite winter sports pitches
FEATURES & BENEFITS
ELITE SPORT is a blend of four hard-wearing perennial ryegrasses for the renovation and construction of winter sports pitches.
The mixture is formulated primarily on performance in the BSPB/STRI Turfgrass Seed booklet; specifically, Table S1 under sports wear simulation. All four cultivars are ranked in the top- 16 of this table, and the blend has an outstanding Mean score of 7.68 (see Figure 1).
Barcristalla has much darker genetic colour than other top varieties (see Figure 2) and has superior Drechslera leaf spot, two factors important to elite stadium environments.

Table S1, Turfgrass Seed 2021. Barcristalla and Barorlando (yellow) show the
best compromise between these two traits.
