Barustic is a versatile variety for use in mixtures for landscape purposes, like lawns, parks, road sides, golf fairways and roughs. Barustic has the best tolerance to extreme circumstances like long lasting drought and winter coldness. Barustic is an intermediate green variety with fine leaves and high resistance to red thread. It does not require high inputs of water and fertilizers. Be aware that Barustic does not form a dense sod and it is not able to withstand wear and close mowing. For that reason it is not recommended to include Barustic in heavy wear sports mixtures and high quality golf green mixtures.
