Coldgro Perennial Ryegrass

Fast establishment and wear tolerance are two of the most important considerations when selecting cultivars for use on Sportsgrounds, Winter pitches, Tees and Fairways. The performance of grass is dependent on the seasonal growth and normally establishment and recovery from wear just doesn’t happen during the winter months.

Annual Ryegrass based rescue mixtures are useful to remedy a problem area in the short term but they are often sown late in the season when a problem is evident and by then, meaningful growth to give performance is often not achievable. Also, being annual grasses they don’t persist beyond the year of sowing.

Coldgro mixtures are perennial ryegrass based and the cool season variety Colosseum is active down to 5oC. Because the winter activity is coming from a Perennial Ryegrass the resultant plants are persistent for a number of years. Also, if established as a new sowing or as part of a normal overseeding programme, the winter period when the turf is susceptible to wear due to plant dormancy is reduced as the Coldgro mixture is still active and recovering from wear.
