Nomix Enviro, the leading supplier of herbicides to the amenity and industrial sectors, has launched a range of great value grass and wildflower seeds, specifically designed to meet the needs of their market.
Nomix believes this range will encourage more amenity managers to consider planting wildflowers as part of their vegetation management programme, in a bid to increase biodiversity and reduce costs. The mixtures being launched have been carefully selected to deliver reliable establishment and a striking display of colour through the season.
Wildflowers offer a practical and cost effective solution to those seeking an integrated approach to pest management. Costs are reduced because grass cutting and pesticide use can both be cut in areas where these flowers are planted. Department of Transport approved highway mixtures are included, as well as products suitable for sports turf, environmental and landscaped areas.
The grass seed mixtures on offer allow maintenance costs to be kept to a minimum. They are quick to establish, low-growing, with good wear tolerance and high levels of disease resistance. The range has been created in partnership with Nomix's sister company, Kings Game Cover and Conservation Crops.
Kings has a wealth of experience supplying products and providing expert conservation advice to landowners and farmers. They work with a number of organisations, including Natural England, The RSPB, The Campaign for the Farmed Environment and the Forestry Commission, to promote environmental issues.
Kings' sales manager, and conservation expert, Richard Barnes says: 'At Kings we are advocates of any action that encourages good land management and increases overall biodiversity. We've worked with Nomix to design this range and it is perfectly suited to the amenity market. We think this could really catch the imagination of a sector that has perhaps not previously considered the potential practical benefits of taking a more active role in conservation.'
