  • Superior colour during playing season
  • Barcristalla is a key variety in Elite Sport, with a much darker genetic colour than other top varieties
  • Barcristalla delivers improved winter and summer greenness
  • Strong Microdochium tolerance
  • Excellent wear-tolerance and superior colour

A well-established ‘earlyheading’ variety, Barcristalla is rare in combining strong performance, especially in the autumn, with far superior greenness scores compared to other top-ranked cultivars.


Developed by the Barenbrug breeding station in south-west France, it also provides strong Microdochium tolerance – a valuable trait, particularly in stadium environments.


Barcristalla is a sports-type perennial suitable for:

  • Football and rugby pitches
  • Golf tees, fairways, walkways and roughs
