Three new seed mixtures included in new catalogue from Limagrain UK

Limagrain UK has introduced three new grass varieties in its new 2013 catalogue of sports and amenity grass seed mixtures.

The three varieties, Cyrena, Nikky and Heidrun, have been added into selected mixtures to bring further performance improvements, said the company.

"The winter sports mixture MM60 now includes the ryegrass Cyrena. This new cultivar performed exceptionally well in last year’s British Society of Plant Breeders’ winter sports trial run at the STRI, in Bingley, West Yorkshire.

"The MM grass seed mixtures - MM8, MM10 and MM11 - for construction and overseeding of golf greens, now benefit from the addition of Nikky, a new Chewings Fescue that is particularly good for fine turf use.

"MM mixtures for fairways, lawns and landscapes, now include a new strong creeping red fescue, Heidrun, which has also performed very well in trials."

Other seed mixtures in this year’s catalogue include MM 75R, a recovery mixture for overseeding winter sports pitches in winter and early spring.

The new MM catalogue also includes a range of environmental mixtures including Bee Mixture which contains plant varieties which attract bumble bees and insects.
