Overseeding golf and bowling greens
100% browntop bentgrass mixture, designed for overseeding and species exchange in golf and bowling greens.
- The blend contains three cultivars: Charles, Heriot and BarKing
Charles is a new NZ-bred variety, named after Bob Charles, the first left-handed golfer to win a major. Like Bob, it breaks new ground, being ranked #1 by a clear half-point in Turfgrass Seed 2019 Table G1. Its scores for visual merit and shoot density promise to have a major impact as part of a species exchange programme, improving golf greens and out-competing Poa annua
BarKing, ranked #5, is an excellent European-bred cultivar with superior wear tolerance and winter colour. It also possesses very good tolerance to Microdochium Patch disease (Fusarium)
- Barenbrug recently published results of an extensive four-year trial assessed independently by the STRI, which highlighted the benefits of using capillaris cultivar instead of other bentgrass species in the UK and Ireland.
