A28 offers wear and tear protection with exceptional fineness of leaf

Germinal Amenity’s A28 Ultrafine Ryegolf is the ideal grass seed mixture for golf courses which suffer from wear and tear damage caused by intensive usage and where a traditional mixture won’t provide adequate performance.

Containing 45 per cent Mirador (slender creeping red fescue), 30 per cent Highnote (chewings fescue) and 25 per cent Cabrio (the number one variety for fineness of leaf on the BSPB’s Series L Table 1 for Perennial Ryegrass), A28 Ultrafine Ryegolf is tolerant of a close mowing regime (4mm) and is ideally suited for use on tees, greens surrounds and approaches. It has also proven particularly popular over the last 12 months as a fairway mixture, with golf courses throughout the UK using A28 to repair damage caused by last year’s drought conditions.

A28 is exceptionally versatile thanks to its perennial ryegrass content which provides outstanding wear characteristics and is compatible with existing swards thanks to its fescue element.

A28 Ultrafine Ryegolf is suitable for use from March to October and should be sown at 35g/m2 (350kg/ha) to a depth 10mm. For overseeding sow at 20g/m2 (200kg/ha).

“Over-seeding our tees with A28 Ultrafine Ryegolf produces a fast-germinating, fine-leaved surface which is hard-wearing enough to be used all year round,” said Mark Todd, course manager, Wildernesse Club, Kent.
