Cabrio Ultra Fine Ryegrass has, for the third consecutive year, been announced as the number one variety for fineness of leaf in the BSPB’s Series L Table 1 for perennial ryegrasses.
Cabrio Ultra Fine Ryegrass
Formally introduced as a new cultivar in 2016, Cabrio Ultra Fine Ryegrass went to the top of the BSPB’s Table L1 for 2017 due to a fineness of leaf scoring of 8.8. It retained this position in 2018 due to another score of 8.8, and has the same position in 2019’s list due to a rating of 8.7 - a score which is half a point clear of its nearest rivals at 8.2.
“Cabrio continues to impress with its exceptional and consistent fineness of leaf score,” said Richard Brown, Germinal Amenity sales manager. “Cabrio also benefits from good all round scores for shoot density (7.8), visual merit (7.9), slow regrowth habit (7.2) and cleanness of cut (7.1) and therefore offers groundsmen, greenkeepers and turf growers an excellent opportunity to produce an exceptionally fine-leaved, hard wearing sward that can not only tolerate a close mowing regime, but which will also give good ball roll or bounce and will be very attractive aesthetically.”
Cabrio is recommended by the company for use on golf tees and golf green aprons as well as tennis courts and cricket squares where it is suitable for repairing baselines and wicket ends.
Cabrio is exclusively available from Germinal in the company’s A5 Cricket, Tennis and Tees, A10 Golf Tees and Divot Repairs, and A28 Ultrafine Ryegolf mixtures.
