Barenbrug’s innovative Turfgrass Research and Development Group has produced a unique, new Perennial ryegrass star, Regenerating Perennial Ryegrass, or RPR. A subspecies of traditional perennial ryegrass, RPR was developed specifically to withstand heavy traffic and rapidly recover. A completely unique regenerating perennial ryegrass, RPR naturally produces a determinate stolon that maintains density and repairs worn turf. 


With initial selection and breeding work done in Virginia, RPR is significantly more heat and drought tolerant than standard perennial ryegrass. Outperforming traditional perennial ryegrass in transition zone climates, RPR is durable, resilient and a survivor. With a growing list of successful, professionally maintained applications, RPR's reputation as a 'problem solver' is growing.


Available as Turf Star RPR, a mixture of RPR varieties and elite perennial ryegrass, Turf Star RPR is the solution for all residential and commercial lawns where perennial ryegrass has been the turf of choice. Homes with pets and/or an active family will benefit from Turf tar RPR's extreme wear tolerance and ability to recover thin and damaged turf. Extremely fast germinating and quick to establish, Turf Star RPR can also be over-seeded into traditional cool season turf lawns, such as Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue and traditional perennial ryegrass.
