Barbados has proven itself in both U.S. and international trials, with the 2002-2006 NTEP trial highlighting the strong performance of Barbados. Barbados is finer leaved than both Princess 77 and Riviera and exhibits excellent spring and summer density. With early spring green-up, Barbados is also very aggressive in spring which allows for quick recovery from winter over-seeding stresses. In the fall, Barbados exhibits a more open turf allowing for easier establishment of over- seeded ryegrass. Barbados is closing the 'turf quality' difference between seeded varieties and the vegetative varieties. In several trials, Barbados has outperformed vegetative types.


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.
