Yellow Jacket Water Manager inside!

The world’s first Seed Enhancement Technology ensures precisely the right balance of moisture for both optimum germination and establishment. Yellow Jacket Water Manager was developed by Aquatrols in cooperation with Barenbrug. When it is irrigated, the substance used to enhance the seed is released into the soil, where it adheres to grains of sand, creating a Plant Survival Zone. Besides retaining water, this zone also regulates the amount of water around each seed, optimising the growing conditions to guarantee vital grass plants that will develop quickly.

Highest wear tolerance!

RPR spreads horizontally by creating a natural network of determinate stolons that form a kind of netting in the sward, making for excellent wear tolerance. Instead of individual grass plants, as in the case of traditional perennial ryegrass, each RPR grass plant is linked to other plants and to the soil. There is much less risk of the grass of sports fields being kicked up because it is tightly held in place. So the most intense matches can be played in sports fields without the risk of the dense sward being severely damaged.



Revolutionary: perennial ryegrass that spreads via stolons!

RPR is regenerating perennial ryegrass that is as strong as iron, minimising the risk of damage caused in sports. This type of grass is unique in that its horizontally spreading determinate stolons create a sward that is many times stronger than that of other perennial ryegrass varieties. The outcome is a unique combination of advantages: a high wear tolerance and fast regeneration, minimising damage during games and ensuring a good condition of your sward.


Extremely strong, fast-establishing sward
RPR is the first type of grass to combine strength and speed. The grass germinates very quickly and has a very high wear tolerance. Fast-establishing perennial ryegrass is often combined with smooth-stalked meadow grass. The resultant mixture germinates and establishes very quickly, but its wear tolerance leaves something to be desired. RPR combines strength with speed, in other words: the best of two worlds.




Less annual meadow grass

RPR is as strong as smooth-stalked meadow grass, but establishes much quicker, greatly reducing the risk of the establishment of undesired annual meadow grass. This implies the advantage of a denser, better rooting sward that needs less fertilisers and water. For more information on annual meadow grass, go to http://www.barenbrug.biz/poa-annua.

Extreme regenerating capacity in spring
Sports fields are used all the year round. RPR can be seeded early in spring to ensure a year-round dense sward. The last thing you want is a sward that can’t be used for sports, for example in winter. Players want the best possible pitches for their games in winter, too. RPR ensures earlier growth in spring, enabling sports to be played earlier in the year.
