MIXTURE: 

100% slender creeping red fescuee

 

USAGE: 

Overseeding and/or construction of free-draining fine and medium-fine turf areas exposed to saline conditions. 

 

  • SHORELINE is an innovative blend of three slender creeping red fescue cultivars; the name SHORELINE is derived from the Latin litoralis, the species name for slender creepers. The mix contains the #2-ranked variety Viktorka alongside long-established cultivars Barmalia and Barpearl
  • The mix provides superior salt tolerance for fescue dominant golf greens on links and seaside golf courses exposed to salt spray and salt-laden winds. It is suitable for the construction and overseeding of all areas of free-draining turf exposed to salt
  • Slender creeping red fescue has superior salt tolerance with cultivars selected for this trait as a result of extensive lab trials
  • Contains Viktorka - the #2 rated slender creeping red fescue

 

LAB TRIALS

Germination salt tolerance is tested in a laboratory using ISTA parameters at different salt levels equivalent to sea water of 20,000 and 30,000 parts per million (ppm), with 0ppm as a control. Laboratory trials at Barenbrug research demonstrate the superior germination capability of cultivars of slender creeping red fescues (Festuca rubra litoralis) in comparison with cultivars of Chewings fescues (Festuca rubra commutata). The data represents percentage germination after 30 days at 0ppm (control), 20,000ppm and 30,000ppm.
