Top Rated Varieties for Superior Performance

cultivar-profiles2PERENNIAL RYEGRASS
Lolium perenne
Approx 750,000 seeds/kg

Fast establishment
Very High Wear Tolerance
Fast re-growth of tillers and leaves

Perennial ryegrass is the fastest establishing species of all the turf grasses. It prefers milder climates but tolerates low temperatures. In temperate climates perennial ryegrass is a true perennial with a high persistence. It can be utilised on most soil types, with the exception of very wet land. Late heading varieties tend to be better under low input utilisation due to less stem formation in mid summer. Some of our new varieties like Sirtaky and Cassiopeia have exceptional density and very fine leaves.

Poa pratensis
Approx. 3,500,000 seeds/kg

Persistent High Wear tolerance
Good recovery

Found in nature on both mineral and humus-rich soils in both northern and southern hemispheres. Fine-leaved varieties with excellent turf qualities have been selected. Poa pratensis isa persistent specie with strong rhizomes and erect leafy shoots. Growth starts early in the spring and re-growth consists mainly of leafy material that is mown very easily and gives a clean cut. Poa pratensis tolerates hard wear and because of it’s rhizomes, can regenerate itself even if the sward is very badly damaged. The heat tolerance of Poa pratensis is good.
