Sowing Guidance

  • Prepare the surface before sowing ensuring that:
    • Stones & weeds are removed.
    • There is sufficient drainage.
    • The surface is level and firm.
    • The surface is moist.
  • Sow the seeds evenly, using the correct sowing rate to a depth of approximately 10 mm.
  • Ensure that the surface remains moist for at least 2 - 3 weeks.
  • Make the first cut when the grass is 5 - 6 cm tall and tillering has started.

Overseeding Guidance

  • Prepare the existing turf by removing excess thatch and limiting irrigation and fertilisation.
  • Apply using the correct overseeding rate.
  • For best results use a disc seeder or a studded seed roller.

How HEADSTART® GOLD Seed Treatment Works

MM60 has had a big effect on all of our pitches. The sward density has increased with more plants per square metre, which really helps in the recovery process after a match.

I have found the product really good to work with from the grow-in period, due to the HEADSTART® GOLD treatment. There is always good recovery from matches and training and recovery is really fast in the spring time.
