Barzico holds the coveted top position on Table S1 of the 2021 BSPB/STRI Turfgrass Seed list. Varieties ranked in Table S1 are trialled for live ground cover, visual merit and wear simulation for sports pitches, such as football and rugby, receiving intensive wear during winter and cut to a height of 25mm.
Originating from Barenbrug’s Dutch breeding station, Barzico is a very strong all-round perennial ryegrass. Visually, it is mid-fine, extremely dense (ranked #2 for this trait) with a medium green colour.
The first harvest (2021) of Barzico has been grown in the UK by one of Barenbrug’s trusted growers. Find out more at barenbrug.co.uk/growers.
