Limagrain has once again set the standard after announcing the addition of a new ryegrass - which is set to be part of the acclaimed MM50 grass seed mixture.
Alison, the latest ryegrass from Limagrain, follows in the footsteps of varieties such as Venice, Malibu and Cyrena, which are all used in various mixtures throughout the market leading MM range of grass seed.
Alison is a fine leaved ryegrass with exceptional shoot density and wear tolerance plus great recovery, making it particularly suitable for all cricket squares, golf tees, fairways and multi-use sports fields.
Disease resistance is a key attribute to the Alison ryegrass along with tolerance to close mowing - ensuring that it is a great addition the Limagrain portfolio. It is this extensive portfolio that has played a part in cementing Limagrain's position as one of the largest seed companies in the world. Only the finest products are brought to the marketplace by Limagrain, and this is once a number of rigorous research and trialling methods have been conducted.
All the varieties in the MM mixtures are also thoroughly tested at the Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI) - ensuring that the finished product will meet your requirements for play, appearance and maintenance.
Already the number one choice for those responsible for managing turf at a number of leading venues in the UK and Europe, MM50 is set to improve even further with the addition of Alison. This superior mix has been designed for fast establishment and recovery in extreme high wear areas. It is ideal for divotting, seeding and overseeding, and can be used all year round. Like other mixtures in the MM range, MM50 is treated with HEADSTART® GOLD - a revolutionary grass seed treatment that ensures rapid germination. This user friendly, non-toxic treatment can help your grass get off to a great start and is perfect for enhancing performance on grass seed coatings for sports fields, golf courses, lawns and amenity turf.
