Grass is not just grass

Plant breeding is a demanding and time-consuming process. Deutsche Saatveredelung (DSV) has been active in grass breeding for almost 100 years. In addition to forage grasses, which have the right to grow quickly and taste good to the animals, we mainly breed lawn grasses. Here the requirements are completely different: the grass should not grow too fast, it should form a dense lawn, tolerate the deep cut of the lawnmower well and, depending on where it is used, e.g. on the sports field, withstand a hard load. The development of suitable varieties is a demanding task that is carried out in our seed breeding stations with dedication, skill and patience: Ten to twelve years pass before a lawn grass variety is approved for use in the home garden after numerous tests.


It's all in the mix

One variety alone does not make a lawn. There are many different types of lawn grass, e.g. perennial ryegrass, red fescue, meadow meadow grass or tall fescue, and within these types there are hundreds of varieties. Therefore, great expertise is required to combine types and varieties in such a way that they meet the requirements exactly. For example, an English ornamental lawn contains completely different types and varieties than a heavily used football field lawn. And a shady lawn has a different composition than a park lawn.

EuroGrass Premium seed mixtures are intelligently combined grass types and varieties with a wide variety of properties that complement each other. For you, this means more safety when planting or reseeding and less effort when looking after the lawn.
