Barenbrug is launching two new grass seed mixtures containing its unique Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF). BAR 10 with RTF and BAR 30 with RTF have both been designed to provide greenkeepers and groundsmen with mixtures capable of withstanding the toughest weather conditions - from drought to waterlogging - with unrivalled recovery and superior wear tolerance.
Also new are two chewings fescues Barbirdie and Barswing. Barbirdie performs well under close mowing regimes, and offers consistently green colour all year round. Barswing, which is suitable for greens, tees and fairways, germinates well under cool soil temperatures and has superb shoot density. It also has outstanding resistance to a variety of diseases such as dollar spot and red thread.
The company will also be revealing the latest results of trials which are testing cultivars for minimum, maximum and optimum temperature germination. With our increasingly unpredictable climate, Barenbrug is playing a leading role in developing cultivars which germinate in cooler temperatures - to extend the renovation window - and others for warmer temperatures which can help with re-instatement following combined heat and drought damage.
