Lolium perenne

Perennial ryegrass

An elegant sports type!

Fine-leaved and good wear tolerance

Due to the use and mixture partners the demand to the leaf size may be different. GREENGLIDE has a fine leaf texture and according to German test authorities a very nice vegetation aspect.

Also the winter aspect is nice, one or two grades better than a lot of the top listed varieties.

The good visual merit has also been seen in the UK Bingley trials for lawns and summer sports.

The very good rating for amenity turf and wear tolerance of the RSM rating speaks for itself and shows the quality of this variety.

The disease resistance is equal to all top listed varieties and the top level wear tolerance makes GREENGLIDE the choice for sports mixtures.
