In 2009, Barenbrug’s innovative research and development team introduced a unique, one-of-a-kind perennial ryegrass subspecies to the turf industry, RPR®. In January 2015, RPR received a utility patent #8,927,804. With recognition as a new turfgrass distinctly different than traditional perennial ryegrass, Lolium perenne ssp. Stoloniferum, RPR was first botanically recognized in 1836. Tolerating extremely heavy traffic with outstanding recuperative abilities, RPR provides excellent turf quality and appearance in the harshest of conditions. RPR provides early establishment and is resilient and tolerant of tough summer weather. RPR is the ideal selection for sports fields, golf courses, home lawns, and recreational turf areas that receive heavy, destructive traffic.
RPR is also available in the following forms:
- RPR w/ Yellow Jacket
- Turf Star RPR
- Turf Star RPR w/ Yellow Jacket
- Turf Blue Pro w/ RPR
- Turf Blue HGT w/ RPR
