Lolium perenne

Perennial ryegrass

Sport type with excellent disease tolerance

Top ranked in selective recommended lists
BIZET 1 has made the way through to the top of two of Europe's most demanding recommended lists for sport use: STRI in the UK and Grasgids in the Netherlands.

Red thread and Fusarium tolerant
On both lists BIZET 1 shows excellent resistance to red thread and has very good snow mold tolerance from the Dutch list.

Sport variety = wear tolerance
The main strength of BIZET 1 is its excellent wear tolerance in the Netherlands, confirmed by a very high score for live ground cover and recovery in the STRI trials.

Recommended use
BIZET 1 is recommended for any high demanding sport mixture, but it can also advantageously included in mixtures used for playgrounds, parks and home gardens.
