    Don't settle for less than the best. Barbados brand provides top turf performance even equaling or surpassing the turf quality of many hybrid, vegetative varieties!


    Featuring SWI-1044 ( NTEP 2002 ) Barbados brand seeded bermudagrass has proven itself in U.S. and international trials. Finer leaved than Princess 77 and Riviera, Barbados brand also exhibits excellent spring and summer density. 

    Tolerant of both close fairway cutting heights and rotary mower at 1", Barbados 'plays well' at a variety of use: Golf, Sports turf, and home.


    In the Fall Barbados exhibits a more open turf allowing for better establishment of over-seeded SOS Turf Annuals and perennial ryegrass. Barbados is very aggressive in the early spring which allows for earlier spring green-up and faster transition from Fall over-seeding. Barbados is closing the difference between seeded varieties and vegetative varieties and in several trials it has proven superior.



    For ease of planting and superior germination and establishment, Barbados Brand also feature's Barenbrug's proprietary Yellow Jacket® enhanced seed coating. Yellow Jacket utilizes superabsorbant technology to produce a coating that can hold up to 600 times its own weight in water. The results provide fast, uniform germination and early growth, with reduced water requirements during early establishment.
