Yellow Jacket Water Manager inside!
The world’s first Seed Enhancement Technology ensures precisely the right balance of moisture for both optimum germination and establishment. Yellow Jacket Water Manager was developed by Aquatrols in cooperation with Barenbrug. When it is irrigated, the substance used to enhance the seed is released into the soil, where it adheres to grains of sand, creating a Plant Survival Zone. Besides retaining water, this zone also regulates the amount of water around each seed, optimising the growing conditions to guarantee vital grass plants that will develop quickly.
Extremely fast establishing grass
The high concentration of fine-leaved perennial ryegrass combined with RPR technology makes for a very fast establishing grass mix. The fine-leaved perennial ryegrass contained in Bar Extreme RPR grows many times faster than smooth meadow grass. The combination with RPR makes it as strong as iron.
Less annual meadow grass
RPR is as strong as smooth meadow grass, but is very fast establishing. It also reduces the ingression of annual meadow grass in your tee or fairway, because of the reduced risk of it establishing in your grass sward.
Primarily intended for overseeding
Consisting of 100% perennial ryegrass, the fast-establishing Bar Extreme RPR is primarily intended for overseeding. A combination of red fescue and smooth meadow grass is usually used for seeding.
The RPR mix produces determinate stolons that create a kind of netting in the sward, linking the individual grass plants. This means fewer divots, so less damage. The RPR technology ensures a regenerating, very fast establishing grass sward.
Higher player intensity
The determinate stolons in RPR create a natural network, like a kind of netting, resulting in a fast establishing sward. So instead of individual grass plants, every grassplant in a RPR sward is linked to another grass plant and to the soil, making for a dense sward. The grass will be held down better, with less risk of turf being torn up by golf clubs on tees or fairways, allowing a higher playing intensity.
Green all year round
This fast establishing RPR mix is particularly suitable for overseeding. Your sward can be overseeded up to three months longer than, say, a Bar Fairway sward. As Bar Extreme RPR is so suitable for overseeding, your golf course will last longer and will be green all year round. And that of course means more turnover for you.
