MM50 Grass Seed

Ideal for extreme wear areas, the cultivars used in this seed mix are fast to establish and are extremely resilient. This enables rapid recovery from damage on playing surfaces and tolerance of close mowing. The Perennial Rye-grass cultivars used produce a dense sward which is able to be cut cleanly. The cultivars are disease resistant and maintain good colour year round.

Customer Testimonial

I trialled Limagrain's MM50 last year throughout the three sites which consists of approximately 27 courts. We did this because I wanted to see the reaction of the seed on different conditions. There are a lot of micro climates around here and it enabled us to see how the seed responded in a tournament situation, and also from a club and a professional use.

The results I got back from the trials revealed to me that it was absolutely a no-brainer to continue to use MM50 across all three sites.
