World Cup pitch chiefs choose Barenbrug seed for football surfaces

England's 2010 World Cup players are working out on hard-working pitches seeded with Barenbrug's BAR 50 SOS seed in preparation for the tournament.

All 32 South African team base camps were overseeded with SOS earlier this spring including the Bafokeng Sports Campus near Rustenburg where the 23-man England team trains.

The tournament's agronomists and advisors went for BAR 50 SOS to achieve fast establishment, sustained growth and good recovery under intense wear.
