BARPRISMA is an Italian ryegrass variety from Barenbrug. Trial results from CTPS in France confirms and guarantees a dense and healthy vegetation, ideal for an excellent production of high quality.


  • Very high yields in the 1st cut and in the first year.


  • Barprisma shows excellent resistance to rust and Xanthomonas*.


  • Barprisma keeps a high percentage of ground cover due to its excellent persistency.


  • Barprisma is particularly recommended for use in southern Europe due to the winter growth habit of the variety.


  • Barprisma is a diploid with a high dry matter content in the plant and therefore, it does not cause extra effluent problems.


Feeding aspects:

  • Barprisma is very palatable and digestible to stock.
  • This means that a high quality silage can be maintained.
  • Barprisma contains a high content of Water Soluble Carbohydrates (sugars) to give better fermentation.


* Xanthomonas (= Bacterial wilt) is a new fast spreading disease which kills the plants, resulting in a strong reduction of dry matter yields. With 96% of the plants resistant to Xanthomonas, Barprisma is one of the best resistant varieties to this disease.

Italian ryegrass provides excellent quality forage for up to two years, depending on climate and available moisture. Due to its quick regrowth, very early development in spring and a prolonged growing period in autumn, this species usually has greater overall productivity than perennial ryegrass.
