365®: Extra grazing days

With the 365® grass seed mix, it's all about providing fresh grass for your cows year-round. This philosophy ensures maximum and stable grass growth from early spring to late autumn, allowing you to get the most out of your roughage. 365® enables you to be the first to put your cows out to pasture. Thanks to an early start in spring and the erect leaf posture of the crop, your field dries up sooner and becomes suitable for grazing your cows. This creates sufficient grazing days early in the year, making grazing during the hot summer days unnecessary. The extended grass season even offers the possibility for extra grazing days.

SOS®: quick germination even at low temperatures

Barenbrug's SOS®, which stands for Super Over Seeding, is a carefully formulated grass seed mix from Barenbrug's team of specialists. Sports fields are played on day in, day out, and it's no surprise that open spots in the turf appear during the colder months. Ordinary grasses often lack sufficient light and temperature to successfully fill in these spots. This is where SOS® makes a difference. SOS® germinates very quickly, even at low temperatures starting from 4 degrees Celsius, thereby offering the ideal solution for sports fields. Thanks to this innovative mix, the grass grows early in the spring, even before other lawn or sports field managers start their grass maintenance, making open spots a thing of the past.

Yellow Jacket Nitrogenerator®: capturing fertilizer from the air

Yellow Jacket Nitrogenerator® is a pioneering seed treatment that adds the right Rhizobium strain to the seed. Thanks to a unique recipe and process, the seed is provided with essential Rhizobium bacteria, while extra nutrients are added to improve their survival rate and lifespan. This is for luzerne and particularly crucial for red clover, as it often faces strong competition from grass and weeds after sowing. With Yellow Jacket Nitrogenerator®, the crop gets the best possible start, enabling it to quickly convert nitrogen from the air into usable ammonium nitrogen for plant nutrition.


Yellow Jacket Water Manager®: Creating a plan survival zone

Yellow Jacket Water Manager® is the world's first seed enhancement technology that optimizes moisture management, enabling optimal germination and establishment of plants. This innovation was developed by Barenbrug. Upon watering, it spreads through the soil and attaches to sand grains, creating a special area known as the "plant survival zone." In this zone, surrounding the young plant in the ground, it can germinate, grow, and survive without stress, thanks to water management.
