These mixtures, along with technical advice and services, will now be available throughout Scotland, extending and complementing the existing supplier in south western Scotland through Lanarkshire-based L S Smellie.
“The agreement with Agrovista in Scotland means we can offer a distribution network throughout Scotland,” says Ian Misselbrook, grass seed manager for Limagrain. “Agrovista, with its team of 20 agronomists operating nationally, will help us meet the strong demand for the Sinclair McGill range throughout Scotland.”
Agrovista has already been working with Limagrain in promoting its amenity grass seed, cereal and maize ranges. “Getting involved in the premium agricultural grass seed brand Sinclair McGill is a logical progression,” says Peter McDonald, Agrovista’s head of strategy. “Our agronomist network will give us a great opportunity to build this business.”
Sinclair McGill grass seed and forage crop range are available from L S Smellie’s Country Stores in Strathaven and Campbeltown, Agrovista’s store in Newton Stewart and, with 24 hrs notice for direct delivery, anywhere in Scotland from Limagrain’s mixing facility and store in Forfar.
