Bring on the Aussies...
As Durham County Cricket Club prepares for an Ashes match this August, find out how groundsman David Measor is preparing the wicket.
"Now we have the Australians coming later in the summer and we will be looking to prepare a cracking pitch. There is currently a lot of grass on it and it had a light rake out at the beginning of the season with a slight reseeding."
When it comes to the type of seed he uses David has for the last ten years stuck exclusively with Barenbrug's BAR EXTREME supplied by local distributor, Turfcare Specialist Ltd.
"In my time as a groundsman I have chopped and changed ryegrasses many a time but for me BAR EXTREME ticks all the boxes. It tolerates the colder conditions, has an excellent root system, can take very close mowing, stands up well to the pounding it gets and has good recovery which is always welcome, especially after a five day test match."
