Barminton has excellent shoot recovery after damage. This makes Barminton deserving of its position amongst the top varieties for sports use. However, its most striking characteristic is its ability to germinate and establish when soil temperatures are still low. This variety is perfectly suited for use in mainly sports turf situations, blending extremely well with other sports turf species such as Poa pratensis. In a mixture, Barminton will guarantee fast establishment, a dense wear-tolerant turf and an early green-up after winter.

 

Application
Barminton is a sports-type perennial suitable for use under particularly cool conditions for:

  • Sport
    • cricket grounds
    • football and rugby pitches

Partner varieties in mixtures
Barminton has been extensively tested at Barenbrug Research and at STRI.
