MM60 is a 100% Ryegrass formula and the UK’s leading winter sports renovation mixture. It is well-known for its extremely fast germination and its high wear tolerance plus excellent disease resistance.

MM50 is perfect for cricket squares, tennis courts and also golf tees and fairways. This hard-wearing mix has rapid germination, extremely fine leaved appearance, high shoot density and is tolerant to very close mowing, as low as 5mm, along with high disease resistance. All these attributes together produce a fantastic sward.

For winter overseeding, many groundsmen choose to repair their pitches with Limagrain’s MM75R mixture which improves sward composition and aids recovery from disease scarring. MM75R enables groundsmen to stay one step ahead as it has fast winter germination speed through the inclusion of Double Tetraploid Ryegrass.

All mixtures in the MM range, are treated with Limagrain’s HEADSTART® GOLD – a revolutionary grass seed treatment that ensures rapid, even germination.

Research and development play a key factor in Limagrain’s success and the company’s extremely high standards for their products are achieved through rigorous testing procedures in their own licensed seed testing facility. In addition, all varieties used in the MM range have been thoroughly tested at the Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI), so you can be sure they will meet your requirements for play, appearance and maintenance.

DLF’s Wildflower And Winter Mixtures

DLF’s Wildflower And Winter Mixtures: Sports, Lawn and Wildflower seed will all be under the spotlight as DLF Seeds return to SALTEX.

The technical team will be on hand to provide mixture advice across the Johnsons Sports Seed and Masterline ranges, but also, visitors to stand J100 will have the chance to win innovative tools for effective on-the-spot overseeding, worth over £600!

DLF's Wildflower And Winter Mixtures

With sustainability and ecology still very much on the agenda for golf courses and those managing green spaces, the DLF Pro Flora wildflower range has been extended with the addition of 3 Colour Boost mixtures. Designed to deliver maximum colour, diversity and interest, the Colour Boost collection incorporates native wildflowers and garden flowering species to deliver a dazzling floral display throughout the year, whilst providing welcome food and shelter for a variety of wildlife.

With winter approaching, the importance of regular overseeding cannot be over-emphasised – essential for sward development, overseeding improves turf quality and can reduce maintenance costs over the long term. DLF’s new turf type tetraploids are ideal for winter overseeding, bred for rapid germination and establishment even under low soil temperatures. These 4Turf tetraploids develop a stronger and deeper rooting system which also improves the efficiency in which nutrients, including Nitrogen, are utilised. Incorporated into Johnsons Sports Seed mixtures including J 4Turf and J Rescue Stadia, the qualities of 4Turf make it suitable for autumn/winter programmes for football, rugby, golf tees, polo and racecourses.

To help make the overseeding process more efficient and effective, DLF have teamed up with ForthRoots to give visitors to SALTEX the chance to win both the new RyeSeeder and MultiTool. For precision overseeding, the RyeSeeder features interchangeable tine options that are designed to fit perfectly into the scars left following matches or training, to create the perfect bed for placement of recovery seeding. With double the tines, the ForthRoots MultiTool is ideal for larger areas – eliminating the need for tractor mounted-overseeding during the playing season.
