80% red fescue
20% browntop bentgrass
Construction of free-draining fine-turf areas; golf and bowling greens
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
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.
The fescue part of the mixture is made up of slender red creeping fescue and Chewings red fescue seed. The combination of these two sub-species offers the best solution for year-round performance and growth in fescue-dominant turf – Chewings fescues will generally be most active in spring through to mid-summer, whereas slender creepers “kick in” during early summer and perform well through to autumn.
CLASSIC 80:20 contains the top-rated Chewings red fescue on the market (Barlineus - 20%), the #4-rated slender creeping red fescue on the market (Viktorka - 40%), and the top-rated browntop 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 2021 Table G1 (Figure 1).
The other bentgrass in the mixture is BarKing, a European-bred variety with exceptional tolerance to Microdochium Patch disease (Fusarium).
