Leading French grass seed breeder, Top Green, introduces Greenvie, a strong creeping red fescue - ranked number one on the STRI list. Ideal for golf tees and fairways, this seed is now exclusively distributed to greenkeepers throughout the UK by specialist seed agent Rigby Taylor, through their dedicated Mascot range.
"Greenvie's density makes it ideal for all fine turf sports applications," says Stephen Alderton, Marketing Manager for Top Green.
For shady areas, and situations where renovation is required, Rigby Taylor's Mascot R116 is making dramatic improvements to course conditions, especially on highly stressed greens. Containing specially developed perennial ryegrass cultivars Greenway, Greenflash and Greenfair, great results have been achieved at the public golf course Garon Park in Essex, where it has dramatically improved wear tolerance in greens over the winter period.
At the Three Rivers Golf and Country Club in Essex overseeding has produced good playing conditions on two particularly shady greens.
Mascot mixes to cater for all conditions are available - from the colder north to the warmer south - or bespoke mixes can be prepared.
The company will be featuring many products from their portfolio, including Breaker wetting agent and Profile granules for improving water percolation - products designed to help achieve a good playing surface 365 days of the year.
