FEATURES & BENEFITS:

MULTI SPORT is a blend of four hard-wearing perennial ryegrasses for the renovation and construction of sports pitches.

 

The mixture is formulated with a focus on performance and sustainability. Three of the cultivars are ranked in the top-16 of Table S1 in the BSPB/STRI Turfgrass Seed booklet 2021 and most of the seed for this blend is produced by British farms here in the UK.

 

Barenbrug-bred cultivars Barcristalla (25% of MULTI SPORT) and Barorlando are ranked #2 and #1, respectively, in the top-50 performing varieties for autumn colour. Figure 1 illustrates this point. One of the two yellow dots is Barcristalla; it exhibits an excellent combination of colour and performance. This means that superb aesthetics can be achieved with reduced Nitrogen inputs.

 

Three of the varieties feature in the first page of table L1 of the BSPB/STRI Turfgrass Seed booklet 2021, which means the blend has adaptability for sports fields with multiple usage or at variable seasonal mowing heights.

 

Baradona exhibits this adaptability perfectly. It is an excellent all-round performer and the only variety with Mean Scores in of 7.5 or greater on both S1 and L1 tables.
