Regro Creeping Ryegrass

First introduced to the groGreen range in 2013, we have experienced some tremendous results with Regro Creeping Ryegrass. After extensive UK trialling, we introduce Corsica into the range. This new variety shows the same Regro traits with even better shoot density and have live ground cover for increased wear tolerance.

What Does It Do

Self repairs…

Trials have shown that in excess of 90% of the Regro Creeping Ryegrass plants exhibit the growth habit that enables lateral spread of the plant via leader shoots. This evolution is of course highly desirable as it provides a very dense, wear tolerant turf that will self repair areas damaged from wear or divoting.

Top growth is also reduced as the plant uses a proportion of its available energy resources to grow laterally. This growth trait also makes the turf more resistant to weed encroachment by offering more competition to weed specie that would otherwise establish on more open or damaged areas.

  • Over 90% of the plants exhibit lateral spread
  • Self repairing

  • Resists weed encroachment
  • Fast establishment
  • High wear tolerance

  • Low maintenance
  • Fine leaved
  • Good visual appearance

Trials

On 30th March 2011 4.5cm diameter (15.9cm2) plugs were cut and transplanted to individual plots for further evaluation. The plugs were measured again on 6th August 2012 with the Regro having spread to cover an area of 790cm2 compared with another creeping ryegrass having achieved only 430cm2.

From the photographs you can easily see Regro displaying a superior ground covering ability, fineness of leaf and colour. Additionally, growth rates were tested over 80 days with Regro Creeping Ryegrass performing visibly better over the course of trials:

Where Can I Use It?

Regro Creeping Ryegrass is ideal for use in Sportsgrounds, Turf production, Racecourses, Tees and all other high wear areas. It is available within our range of mixtures or on its own.
