- MEDAL is a mixture of perennial ryegrass and red fescue, designed for the construction or overseeding of medium-fine and fine turf under high wear pressure.
- The main components of the mixture are the ryegrasses; Barolympic and Eventus. Barolympic is the stand-out cultivar ryegrass for summer sports use. It is ranked with a score of 8.7 in Table G4 of BSPB TGS 2020, the highest Mean score in the entire publication, and more than a full point clear of its nearest rival in G4!
- Eventus is ranked #3 for Fineness of Leaf in TGS Table L1 and shows very fast recovery and growth rates (ranked #1 in the top 40, Table L1) for a summer sports ryegrass. This enables quick germination, establishment and mid-season repair in areas of high traffic.
- Viktorka and Barrisse are both excellent performers, highly ranked in their respective tables in TGS 2020. They both exhibit exceptionally high shoot density and red thread tolerance for their sub-species of red fescue.
