Lolium perenne

Perennial ryegrass

Extreme Wear Resistance and very Low Growing

Low Growing for Better Economy and Ecology
CLEOPATRA has proven to be very low growing with a score of only 2 (on a scale where 9 = high production) - this characteristic is of major importance in all areas where the cuttings have to be removed and also for better aspect after mowing if mulching aggregates are used.

A Level of Wear Tolerance We Didn't Expect to Reach so Fast
With the variety Cleopatra a new milestone in terms of adaptation to sport grounds was made - due to a very exceptional wear tolerance. We didn't expect to surpass this level so fast, and even with a lower growing variety! We are also pleased to observe that the score for use in more extensive areas is good too.


Scale 1-9, where 9 = best or most pronounced
