New MM50 Signals Good News for Cricket Groundsmen

Limagrain’s popular MM50 grass seed is set to deliver even better results in cricket square renovations this summer and autumn.

Over recent years, Limagrain’s MM50 has been the number one choice for cricket groundsmen. Those representing grass roots, schools, local clubs and international test venues have all benefitted from using MM50 – and now, these groundsmen will see even better results after a new variety has been added to the mixture.

MM50 now benefits from the addition of Alison – the latest fine leaved ryegrass from Limagrain. It possesses exceptional shoot density along with tolerance to close mowing making it particularly suitable for all cricket squares. Other key features include fast recovery from wear and damage and high disease resistance.

This tried and tested grass seed treatment helps the seed get off to the best possible start – therefore it is ideal to use in the less than favourable conditions that can sometimes be found on cricket squares during renovations.
