40% slender creeping red fescue
30% perennial ryegrass
30% Chewings red fescue
Overseeding and/or construction of fine turf with moderate wear; golf and bowling greens; tees and fairways
- 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 #1 with a score of 8.6 in Table G4 of BSPB TGS 2019, 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 in the mix are outstanding performers, including #1-rated Barlineus and #2-rated Viktorka.
