Bargold is very well known for its use on golf courses all over Europe. This very fi ne-leaved perennial ryegrass has an excellent close mowing tolerance (down to 5 mm!). This makes Bargold the best choice for the overseeding of tees, fairways and greens! The variety has superb red thread resistance and maintains a healthy colour, even if nitrogen applications are decreased. Moreover, Bargold mixes very well with finer species such as Festuca rubra commutata and Festuca rubra trichofylla.
Bargold is a fine-leaved type perennial suitable for:
- golf courses: tees, fairways and greens
- cricket grounds and tennis courts
- Surrounds / aprons
- Bowling greens
- Turf production
