Be prepared for extremes! The climate is changing worldwide. Extremes are becoming the new standard. We see heavy downpours, sweltering heat and very dry summers. As a turf professional, you are more frequently under pressure. Do I have to irrigate and how much? Has my fertiliser been leached out? Can I cut the grass when it is so wet? But there is no reason for stress! There is a new grass technology that can handle these extremes resiliently, Resilient Blue®! It will take the punches of extreme stress and fights back!
Tolerance during stress periods
Prolonged drought and heat, high disease pressure and long-term low nutritional levels, are all factors that can be fatal for your turf and cause you headaches! Unlike normal smooth-stalked meadow grasses, Resilient Blue® keeps a 'cool head' under these conditions and it tolerates a wide range of stress factors. By recovering at the right time, Resilient Blue® can fight back and achieve optimal grass coverage. This makes Resilient Blue® unique!

Fastest recovery from heat and drought
If your turf is under severe drought and heat stress, it is nice to know that you can rely on Resilient Blue® to fight through and recover a good condition again. Resilient Blue® has well above average stress tolerance and it recovers significantly faster from extremes.

Extraordinary wear tolerance
Resilient Blue® uses our strong as iron RPR® technology. RPR® - regenerating perennial ryegrass, unlike normal perennial ryegrass, forms stolons that ensure recovery from any damage at lightning speed. Common, bunch-type, perennial ryegrass does not have this property. The stolon formation capability makes RPR® very strong in regeneration. And RPR® germinates and establishes itself very quickly. RPR® grass technology and Resilient Blue® grass technology go hand in hand, each reinforcing the other. A very strong and resilient combination!
High disease tolerance
Extreme weather conditions often lead to stress and a high level of disease pressure. Resilient Blue®'s resilience ensures that your turf is less susceptible to attack by fungi and your turf not only remains greener; it is also healthier. This means that you can play continuously on the turf. And this gives cost savings on maintenance, damage repair and pesticides.
Resilient Blue® Sport performs better under a low-input regime than standard sports field mixture and is therefore the best solution for extensively used and maintained pitches, fields or courts. In short, Resilient Blue® is the smartest solution for sowing new sports fields! This is where Resilient Blue® technology comes into its own. It is, of course, also suitable for overseeding existing fields. Keep in mind that in comparison to lolium perenne, poa pratensis generally takes a little longer to grow to its full potential.
