Striker Platinum is an ultrafine perennial ryegrass blend that sets a new standard in superior performance for sportsfields. Strike Platinum is a mix of two of Barenbrug’s finest - Barolympic and Premier 3, and is characterised by fast germination and produces a very fine, dense turf for close-mowing and high wear situations.

Striker Platinum suits all temperate and sub-tropical regions of Australia. This mix performs best on well-drained, fertile, soils and is suitable for oversowing Bermudagrass providing good seed-to-soil contact. This strong-performing ryegrass mix makes it suitable for long-term turf surfaces and summer cricket events with irrigation.
