Barenbrug seed introductions

Barenbrug's breeding programme has produced three new mixtures and four new cultivars for 2011.

Leading the new mixture line-up, BAR Trio is a 100 per cent fescue blend designed to provide the superior salt tolerance, shoot density and disease tolerance required by links courses.

BAR Medal mixture is for fine turf applications such as golf tees needing a high-quality appearance with a greater degree of recovery and wear tolerance.

RTF Turf harnesses the deep-rooting ability of rhizomatous tall fescue and adds the high shoot density and fine-leafed appearance of new tall fescue Barcesar.

Barcesar, along with fine-leaved perennial ryegrass Barsignum, has achieved number one positioning in the 2011 Turfgrass Seed guide. Other new cultivars from Barenbrug are the slender creeping red fescue Barprince and Barrocky perennial ryegrass, noted for its fast germination and recovery.
