Barenbrug continues to demonstrate its commitment to the Irish turfcare sector with the launch of a dedicated product range - full details of which are featured in the company's new standalone catalogue for the country .
Leading the new BAR range 2011 mixtures line up is BAR Medal, a product specifically developed with the demands of Irish fine turf applications in mind. Containing an innovative blend of 60 percent Bargold perennial ryegrass and 40 percent Viktorka slender creeping red fescue, the mixture promises to provide the superior wear tolerance and fast-establishment combined with a very fine-leafed appearance required for fine turf applications, such as golf tees and greens.
Another new addition is BAR Trio, an innovative 100 percent fescue blend designed to provide superior salt tolerance, shoot density and disease tolerance. Containing a unique blend of three top-performing Barenbrug slender creeping red fescues - 40 percent Viktorka, 30 percent Barcrown and 30 percent Barpearl - BAR Trio has been developed through extensive trials across Ireland and the UK in order to cope with the distinctive demands of the country's links courses.
The 16-page catalogue also includes products particularly suited to the sports unique to Ireland, from Gaelic football and hurling to equestrian applications. All that and a wealth of expert advice designed to help Ireland's turf professionals get the best out of their overseeding endeavours!
Plus with the specialist grass seed breeder undertaking in-depth golf trials at Druids Glen in County Wicklow and Ballybunion in County Kerry, regional sales manager for Ireland, Neil Pettican, says the company's support couldn't be stronger. "We continue to show our commitment to Ireland with a pioneering trials programme together with our new catalogue, new mixtures for Irish customers - as well as attending the GCSAI show in March. This significant investment shows we're serious about finding grass seed solutions for Ireland's unique climate and conditions, and helping turf professionals get the best from the their seed."
