MIXTURE: 100% perennial ryegrass

 

USAGE: Renovation and/or construction of winter sports(football and rugby) pitches

 

RPR SPORT is a highly researched blend of three hard-wearing perennial ryegrasses for the renovation and construction of elite winter sports pitches.


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 focussed 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 2019 data supports the Cropvale Research. Barcristalla and Barorlando are ranked #6 and #9, respectively, for mean performance under wear and #1 and #2 for autumn colour (in the top-70 varieties).


Barlibro is a Regenerating Perennial Ryegrass (RPR) that produces stolons as it establishes and grows.
