Massive spring growth

Barburian is a new tetraploid perennial ryegrass from Barenbrug’s breeding program in Romania. Internal and official state trial in different Eastern European countries have shown that this variety gives massive spring growth. Barburian recovers well  after winter and starts production right away. This will give an excellent yield for the 1st cut, the most important forage harvest on many farms. Therefor Barburian is suited for farms in continental areas who want yield and quality combined. 

 

Drought tolerant ryegrass

Barenbrug Research in Romania has several trial locations where there is severe summer drought. Periods of two till three months without rain are very common. This makes such locations excellent for selecting the best grass varieties for drought tolerance. Among the ryegrasses, Barburian proved to be outperforming the common types. Though it is not cocksfoot or tall fescue, this variety shows to be adapted to the real continental climate.

 

Excellent winterhardy tetraploid

From the past, tetraploid ryegrass wasn’t too good surviving severe winters compared to diploid types. However, intensive breeding and selection has changed this situation. The new generation of tetraploids are showing better winterhardiness than before. For this reason Barenbrug recommends to use new tetraploid varieties, like Barburian, into grass seed mixtures for areas with cold winters.
