Exclusively from Barenbrug, Monaco is a synthetic variety produced by the inter-crossing of five clonal parent lines for quality and performance. Monaco is excellent for use on golf courses, sports turf, and higher quality lawns. It has excellent density and wear tolerance.
Bred for a genetically darker green colour, it also has quicker spring green-up, high colour retention, and winter hardiness. Monaco will make a great addition to your landscape.

Sowing and Establishing Barenbrug Monaco Bermudagrass
For best results, Monaco should be planted in areas of full sunlight when soil temperatures reach 18° C and are rising. The seeding rate is 1 to 1.5 kg per 100m2 of Monaco seed in a well-prepared firm seedbed. Cover the seed with no more than 6mm of soil. Maintain adequate soil moisture around the seed using frequent but light irrigation.
During the grow-in phase, it is recommended to apply 2.5kg nitrogen per 100m2 every 2 weeks with the first application made 2 weeks after emergence. Continue this schedule for 60 to 90 days then apply 3.5 to 7.0 kg per 100m2 each month of the growing season. The management intensity level will determine the amount of nitrogen required monthly. Sports turf installations should use the higher rate while residential lawns may prefer to use the lower rate. It should also be noted that in autumn when Monaco is preparing for dormancy, it is recommended to apply additional amounts of potassium while significantly reducing nitrogen.
Maintaining Barenbrug Monaco Bermudagrass
Begin mowing the new stand approximately 3 to 4 weeks after emergence depending on the conditions at the time of establishment. The recommended minimum mowing height during establishment is 1 inch. Once the sod matures, the mowing height can be gradually reduced to a minimum of 1cm. As the mowing height is decreased, the required management level will be increased.
Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon) produces a vigorous, deep-rooted and light to dark green, dense turf which is well adapted to most soils and grows the best in warm climates. Bermuda spreads by both rhizomes and stolons. It has excellent wear, drought, heat and salt tolerance, establishes quickly, produces lateral stems and is competitive against weeds. Exclusively from Barenbrug, Monaco is continuing the legacy founded by Riviera. The newest release from the Johnston Seedbreeding program, Monaco is a synthetic variety produced by the intercrossing of five clonal parent lines. Commercial seed is only produced from the Syn-1 generation which results in superior genetic integrity and seed quality year in and year out. Monaco is excellent for use on golf courses, sports turf, and higher quality lawns. It has excellent density and wear tolerance. Bred for a genetically darker green colour, it also has quicker spring green-up, high fall colour retention, and winter hardiness, Monacowill make a great addition to your landscape
