Overseeding, divoting and construction of medium-fine turf areas across a range of soil types.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
Our innovative mixture of four grass species. The “driver” of the mixture is Barprium perennial ryegrass. An outstanding fine-leafed ryegrass with proven capacity for nitrogen-use efficiency; put simply, it requires far less nitrogen (up to 50% less) to deliver equivalent turf performance.
Barprium is highly ranked with a mean score of 7.5* on Table L1 and exhibits strong summer colour, another useful characteristic for low-input golf fairways.
The fine fescue cultivars are chosen for their sustainable performance characteristics also. In trials at Landlab in Italy, Hardtop hard fescue performs particularly well in periods of heat and drought.
The mixture exhibits high disease tolerance in low-input environments. Hard fescue copes well under Dollar Spot pressure, and both Barpearl and Barrisse have excellent Red Thread tolerance.
In SGT Rye Fairway, Barprium offers proven capacity for nitrogen-use efficiency, requiring up to 50% less nitrogen.
In a recent 18 month STRI trial (shown above), results demonstrate nitrogen efficiency from a number of cultivars against live ground cover. Barprium delivers the highest mean turf cover to all other cultivars. Put simply, it requires far less N to deliver equivalent turf performance.
STRI researchers concluded: “The best performing cultivar in this trial was Barprium, with good turf quality and coverage observed at all N levels and N types. Even at very low levels of N, Barprium still showed good quality and coverage.”
