Barflip is a new very late diploid variety from Barenbrug. This variety has been adopted on the German ‘BSA-Sortenliste’ since 2011 with excellent notes for sward density, yield and persistency. Barflip is the best variety in Germany for sward density, making it the ideal choice for long term grassland. (see table 1)


Unique combination of yield and sward density

A high yielding variety in combination with a perfect sward density is exactly what is demanded for in modern grasslands. Barflip forms plants which are tillering very fast, but also produce a lot of green leaf mass. In practice this means there are hardly any weed infections and no open places in the pasture. This ensures a long term and stable forage production of high quality. Compared to some other varieties, which have to be overseeded in an earlier stage, Barflip will eventually save money for the farmer.


High forage quality

Barflip is one of the latest heading varieties on the market. This means there is less stem formation in the 1st cut, leading to a higher digestibility. Therefor this Barenbrug product is a perfect tool to produce more milk from forage. On top of that, Barflip’s high crown rust resistance ensures a healthy and palatable crop.

One of the most important and widely used forage grasses, exhibiting rapid establishment, good tillering ability, excellent response to nitrogen and high acceptability to stock. Compared with other species, perennial ryegrass is more digestible, thus giving higher digestible dry matter production.
