Barbados Brand 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.
Riviera was developed and released by Oklahoma St Univ in the late 1990's. At the time of its release, Riviera exhibited the strongest cold tolerance available for seeded bermudagrass available. Today, it can arguably still make that claim. With a broad base of use, Riviera has found its place across the entire range of bermudagrass adaptation, but it's known and grown for it's cold tolerance and it's great turf quality.
