Exclusively from Barenbrug, Monaco is continuing the legacy founded by Riviera. Monaco is a superior seeded bermudagrass that is excellent for use on golf courses, sports turf, and higher quality lawns. It has excellent density and wear tolerance which are staples in Barenbrug’s product line. Bred for a genetically darker green colour, it also has quicker spring green-up, high fall colour retention, and winter hardiness to help further extend the growing season for transition-zone areas. Monaco is enhanced with Barenbrug’s exclusive Yellow Jacket - Seed Enhancement Technology.
In the 2016 NTEP trials, Monaco was a proven performer. Rating high in several categories, Monaco specifically stood out in trials encompassing overall turfgrass quality, early spring green-up, and fall color. Included in over 10 trial sites from coast to coast and from the transition zone to the deep south, Monaco exhibits superior adaptability. This range of implementation makes it the perfect choice for traditional bermudagrass regions and transition climates alike. Dr. Charles Taliaferro comments, “Monaco bermudagrass has performed well in turf evaluation trials conducted over a range of environments. It’s demonstrated performance makes it a good choice for a wide range of applications in the turfgrass industry.”
