Annual Ryegrass Varieties

With the initial development of Panterra by Texas A&M, Barenbrug’s U.S. Research team took the promise of improved Turf Annual Ryegrass and developed the program into an ‘ART™ form’. Our Advanced Ryegrass Technology now encompasses four unique turf-annuals including Panterra, Panterra V, BarTerra and TerraBar.


Turf-Annual Ryegrass

  • Fast germination with rapid establishment
  • Unique overseeding grass
  • Easy spring transition, non-persistent
  • Significantly lower growing with fewer clippings than traditional annual ryegrass
  • Ideal for late season over-seeding
  • Germinates at soil temps in low 40's 
  • Featured in select Barenbrug SOS Turf-Annual ryegrasses.

Bred by Texas A&M University Scientists, Barenbrug’s Panterra was the first true turf-annual ryegrass ever developed. Panterra germinates quicker and at lower temperatures than perennial ryegrass and naturally transitions when temperatures exceed 90 degrees, thus virtually eliminating the need for a chemical transition in the spring as bermudagrass or other warm-season grasses come out of dormancy.


Released in 2006, Panterra is a very economical turf-annual ryegrass that offers rapid establishment and easy spring transition. Advancements in breeding led to a more compact, finer texture, and darker colored plant that is exhibited in Panterra. This turf-annual was developed specifically for winter overseeding; displaying great turf quality on golf courses, sport fields, green belts, and other warm season turf applications. Panterra is featured in select Barenbrug SOS Turf-Annual ryegrasses.
