“Cabrio easily outperforms its nearest rivals in terms of fineness of leaf and produces a harder wearing sward that can tolerate a close mowing regime and give good ball roll or bounce.”

Cabrio Ultra Fine Ryegrass is also the finest leaved variety on the BSPB’s G4 List for close mown conditions: when cut to 4-7mm Cabrio has a fineness of leaf score of 8.3 compared to its nearest rival at 8.0.

Cabrio is included in Germinal’s A5 Cricket, Tennis and Tees seed mixture where it is paired with Escapade, the “number 6” perennial ryegrass variety in the Series L list for 2017.   Cabrio is also included in Germinal’s A10 Golf Tees and Divot Repairs and A28 Ultrafine Ryegolf mixtures.
