Cabrio is the latest addition to Germinal's portfolio of perennial ryegrass cultivars. Amenity sales manager Richard Brown said Cabrio has the finest leaf score (9.2) of any rival variety, allowing for attractive, hard-wearing swards that can tolerate close mowing while giving good roll or bounce.
The 'A5 - Cricket, Tennis and Tees' contains 35% Cabrio, 45% Escapade and 20% Euro Cordus, while the 'A10 - Golf Tees and Divot Repairs' contains 10% Cabrio, with the remainder a mix of fescues, smooth-stalked meadow grass, perennial ryegrass, browntop bent and creeping bent.
"The Grade-A range has been designed specifically by Germinal for use by professional greenkeepers and groundsmen," Brown said. "These mixtures contain only the most vigorous and highly rated cultivars, resulting in a range of dependable mixtures that consistently deliver results."
