80% red fescue
20% browntop bentgrass
Construction of free-draining fine-turf areas; golf and bowling greens
- CLASSIC 80:20 is a traditional mix of fescue and bentgrass designed to deliver a consistent and balanced blend of these species when sowing out new fine-turf areas such as golf and bowling greens.
- CLASSIC 80:20 contains both the top-rated red fescue on the market (Barlineus, 20%) and the top-rated browntopo bentgrass on the market (Charles - 10%) 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 2020 Table G1 (Figure 1).
- The other bentgrass in the mixture is BarKing, a European-bred variety with exceptional tolerance to Microdochium patch disease (Fusarium). In the latest concluded independent BSPB/STRI bentgrass trial, it ranked #1 for Michrodochium tolerance out of 39 cultivars tested.
