BTME showgoers first to see host of new products

A total of 7,538 visitors to this year's BTME had the chance to check out some of the new products launched at the show.

Headland Amenity has expanded two of its fertiliser ranges, adding Multigreen 28-0-0+3MgO to its granular-fertiliser range, and Solufeed NK 15-0-25+MgO to its water-soluble range.

Scotts presented five new products, including a dual weed and moss killer called Jewel, which kills a number of tough, broadleaved turf weeds including bristley oxtongue, buck's horn plantain, greater plantain, white clover, daisy, creeping buttercup, speedwell and birdsfoot trefoil.

Scotts marketing manager Dave Steward said the product was unlikely to be affected by the new EU pesticides rules.

Vitax launched a new range of six Supaturf Spreaders, consisting of models from the professional 60RD Broadcast spreader with a capacity of 46 litres to the DS10 Economy Drop model, which holds 23 litres.

Syngenta brought out its new multi-active turf fungicide Instrata, which combines three actives - fludioxonil, propiconazole and chlorothalonil. The product gives greater reliability, said Syngenta turf manager Simon Elsworth.

British Seed Houses introduced a new seed mixture - A27 - during the show. A27 contains Chewings fescues 'Dorianna' and 'Raisa', and slender creeping red fescues 'Count' and 'Aberflight'.

New Holland presented its Easy Drive Continuously Variable Transmission in its production format for the first time.

Easy Drive is available on the new Boomer 3000 compact tractors from 40-50hp.
