Bar Trio Bent consists of 100% creeping bent grass. It comprises at least three different varieties and can be mown the closest possible, down to 2.5 mm. It is advisable to use Bar Trio Bent for seeding greens with the shortest grass ever.
The fact that Bar Trio Bent can be mown so closely implies extremely high ball speeds and playing quality. A Stimpmeter can be used to check whether ball speeds are indeed that high on a green. This simple device enables greenkeepers to accurately measure ball speeds.
Creeping bent grass tends to be fairly susceptible to diseases. Barenbrug has paid a lot of attention to developing varieties that are less susceptible to diseases. Bar Trio Bent contains the very best varieties with good resistance to, in particular, dollar spot and Fusarium. Dollar spot causes small round patches in swards, while Fusarium affects the grass’s roots, turning them black and ultimately killing them.
The combination of the best varieties in the 100% creeping bent grass mixture results in very dense greens. The use of different varieties ensures synergy, which means that the individual varieties contained in the mixture strengthen one another. Bar Trio Bent consequently creates a very dense sward with a high optical quality and excellent playing quality.
An unattractive colour can seriously spoil a green’s overall effect. Various grasses do not survive winter, but the optical quality of Bar Trio Bent is high all year round.
Creeping bent grass is known for its fast establishment. Its high establishment rate has now even been improved by using the best selected varieties. This fast establishment means that there is less risk of annual meadow grass establishing, and golfers can soon enjoy a beautiful green on which their balls will roll very fast.
