SOS (Super Over Seeding) is much more than a bag of seed. Developed by Barenbrug, in conjunction with Texas A&M University, SOS is the most advanced overseeding program available. SOS Turf-type annual ryegrass blends and mixtures are ideally suited for fall over-seeding of residential and commercial bermudagrass lawns.
Traditionally there have been two options when it comes to overseeding; annual ryegrass or perennial ryegrass. Both options have benefits as well as distinct problems.
Perennial ryegrass looks great but is very persistent and not apt to die out quickly. In most overseeding situations you have to either wait for the heat to kill the perennial ryegrass (causing potential damage to the warm-season grass base) or use expensive herbicides to spray it out.
Annual ryegrass traditionally lacks turf quality. It’s wide leafed and is usually much lighter in color. However, it has two advantages over perennial; it establishes quickly allowing it to out-compete weeds and transitions out quickly with little help allowing for better recovery of your warm-season turf base.
Now there is a third option. SOS takes the best of both perennial ryegrass and annual ryegrass and combines them into one easy to use package. SOS 211 /Features 50% Perennial ryegrass 50% Annual which allows you to keep your winter overseeding grass later into summer.
The secret is SOS’s revolutionary turf-type annual ryegrass. Dwarf, dark green, fine leafed and transitions seamlessly – SOS is a true advantage for any turf manager tired of fighting their overseeding.
When talking about annual ryegrass, most people think of the old variety Gulf. But through intensive breeding by Barenbrug researchers, there are now advanced options that combine the benefits of both perennial and annual in one germplasm. These new varieties look like perennial ryegrass but still transition like an annual ryegrass which results in a smooth, more predictable transition.
With SOS you are guaranteed to get the newest and best performing turf-type annual ryegrasses on the market. Barenbrug believes turf-type annual ryegrasses are the future of overseeding. The unique combination of cost effective seed, fast germination and smooth predictable transition make turf-type annual ryegrass the ideal Super Over Seeding solution.
It all starts in the seed production fields. Barenbrug’s turf-type annual ryegrasses are produced in clean fields and never follow forage annual ryegrasses to eliminate weed contamination. SOS is the highest quality overseeding seed you can get!
