- PLATINUM FINE TURF is a mixture of perennial ryegrass and red fescue, designed for the construction or overseeding of fine turf under moderate wear pressure
- The “driver” of the mixture is 30% Barolympic perennial ryegrass. 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!
- In addition to its outstanding Mean score, Barolympic is ranked #1 for pale colour and #2 for fineness of leaf in Table G4. This makes it exceptionally easy to blend in with other grass species, such as red fescue or annual meadowgrass.
- The red fescue cultivars Musica, Barpearl and Barrisse are excellent performers, all top-10 rated in the 2020 booklet.
