Limagrain to launch 2016 brochure at BTME
Limagrain UK has announced that it will be launching its brand new brochure for its popular MM range of grass seed mixtures at BTME 2016 on stand C39.
When it comes to product performance and appearance, top sports grounds, including many of the UK’s finest golf courses, tend to look no further than Limagrain’s MM range of grass seed. The MM range is one of the most respected brands in the UK turf industry and its wide array of mixtures have a proven track record of producing the best possible swards for the intended end usage.
The demand and pressure placed on the modern day greenkeeper and course manager to produce the best possible, consistent playing surfaces continually grows at a pace but fortunately Limagrain can ensure that you are always that one step ahead. Whether it be a mixture for your greens, tees or fairways – the MM range has it covered.
For your greens, quite often the centre piece of the course and what greenkeepers are ultimately judged on, then MM11, MM9, MM8 and MM10 could be for you. The fescue/browntop bent MM11 mix is ideal for new constructions and overseeding existing swards while the MM10 offers a slight variation. Both mixtures are fine leaved, disease resistant and make good, dense putting surfaces.
Where levels of wear are greater or if you are struggling to maintain fescue then MM9, a three way browntop bent mixture, should be your choice of seed. For links style courses, sustainable golf or for early season overseeding, then find out more about MM8 and how it can make a dramatic improvement on your greens.
An all ryegrass blend, such as the ever-popular MM50, is the most practical solution if you are seeking a mixture for your tees that is both capable of rapid establishment and fast recovery from divot scarring and high wear. For large tees where play is less intense then it may be worth considering MM22 and alternatively, where damage and wear are minimal then use MM12 or MM13; both of which are drought tolerant and have low maintenance requirements.
Some of these low maintenance mixtures, such as MM12, MM13 and MM22 are also best applied to fairways and the new 2016 brochure will provide you with more information about how all of the mixtures in the MM range are treated with Limagrain’s HEADSTART® GOLD – a revolutionary grass seed treatment that ensures rapid germination.
The new brochure also includes valuable technical advice, information on mixture composition and some extremely useful facts and figures including a quantity guide and a sowing rate conversion chart.
Visit stand C39 at BTME to pick up your new 2016 brochure and take the first steps towards significantly improving your golf course.
