Resilient Blue® Grass Technology

logo resilient blue

Be prepared for extremes! The climate is changing worldwide. Extremes are becoming the new standard. We see heavy downpours, sweltering heat and very dry summers. As a turf professional, you are more frequently under pressure. Do I have to irrigate and how much? Has my fertiliser been leached out? Can I cut the grass when it is so wet? But there is no reason for stress! There is a new grass technology that can handle these extremes resiliently, Resilient Blue®! It will take the punches of extreme stress and fights back!

Tolerance during stress periods

Prolonged drought and heat, high disease pressure and long-term low nutritional levels, are all factors that can be fatal for your turf and cause you headaches! Unlike normal smooth-stalked meadow grasses, Resilient Blue® keeps a 'cool head' under these conditions and it tolerates a wide range of stress factors. By recovering at the right time, Resilient Blue® can fight back and achieve optimal grass coverage. This makes Resilient Blue® unique!

Fastest recovery from heat and drought

If your turf is under severe drought and heat stress, it is nice to know that you can rely on Resilient Blue® to fight through and recover a good condition again. Resilient Blue® has well above average stress tolerance and it recovers significantly faster from extremes.

Extraordinary wear tolerance

Resilient Blue® uses our strong as iron RPR® technology. RPR® - regenerating perennial ryegrass, unlike normal perennial ryegrass, forms stolons that ensure recovery from any damage at lightning speed. Common, bunch-type, perennial ryegrass does not have this property. The stolon formation capability makes RPR® very strong in regeneration. And RPR® germinates and establishes itself very quickly. RPR® grass technology and Resilient Blue® grass technology go hand in hand, each reinforcing the other. A very strong and resilient combination!

High disease tolerance

Extreme weather conditions often lead to stress and a high level of disease pressure. Resilient Blue®'s resilience ensures that your turf is less susceptible to attack by fungi and your turf not only remains greener; it is also healthier. This means that you can play continuously on the turf. And this gives cost savings on maintenance, damage repair and pesticides.

Resilient Blue® Golf is of course also exceptionally good for new sowing and produces a beautifully balanced, dense, and resilient turf. Wherever Resilient Blue® technology is needed to take the hard punches, it will take establish itself and do its job! The golf mix is a 'low-input' mixture and can do well with less nutrition and maintenance than standard grass mixes for this application. Resilient Blue® Golf is an investment in a sustainable long-term solution!
