Stick with proven performers! Research and development manager, Jayne Leyland, is
encouraging turf professionals to discover how the proven performance of Barenbrug products backed by rigorous trials can help them.
“Nowadays, no one can
afford to invest in overseeding, species exchange or new construction projects without thoroughly researching and having confidence in the products and services they choose,” she comments. “Our commitment to applied research,

We have access to a myriad of both existing and early research products, and have extensively and continually trialled enhancements for the past five years through both our own trials and trials at the STRI. As a result, we can confidently say that, at present, there is nothing scientifically proven to work or be of any practical benefit. “What’s more concerning is
we have identified needless seed treatments, which have been shown to have a significant detrimental effect on germination, establishment and plant health and vigour. And with some seed treatments making up as much as 50 percent of the weight in the bag, customers pay more for ‘dead’ weight and seed that is neither viable nor vigorous. However, we remain optimistic and will continue to test this technology – but will not treat seed until we have found a scientifically - proven enhancement that is of benefit to our customers.”
