Barenbrug to showcase new turf cultivars at BTME

Barenbrug will be showing off 10 new cultivars at the BTME turf-management conference next year.

The firm's "Perfect 10" will include four new fescues for fine and medium-fine turf.

"Viktorka and Bargreen II boast unrivalled shoot density and disease tolerance," said a representative for Barenbrug, which will show the cultivars at BTME in Harrogate in late January.

Two mixtures also join the line-up - BAR Sprint for racecourses and the fast-establishing Poa annua-beating mixture, BAR OC.

"These new additions are joined by the recently introduced BAR 50 SOS, which has proved popular with greenkeepers and groundsman seeking rapid turf repair."

The Perfect 10 also includes new fine-leaved tall fescue, Barleduc, and smooth-stalked meadowgrass Bariris, which offers good wear-tolerance and recovery, he added.

Completing the line-up are two hardwearing perennial ryegrasses: Bardorado, which has good tolerance to leaf spot, and Barillion, which boasts good shoot recovery.
