New seed treatment for grass mixtures gives extra boost to germination

A new seed treatment called Headstart Gold is now being applied to all amenity grass seed mixtures in Limagrain’s MM and Designer ranges to help give them an even better start. This new seed coating is based on the original and successful Headstart treatment, and additionally includes four key minerals which give extra nutritional support to the seed in the critical start-up phase following germination.

Limagrain’s Matt Gresty explains: “Up until this year, all MM sports mixtures were treated with Headstart to boost germination and aid establishment. The formulation included a seaweed extract and biostimulants.

“The new Headstart Gold treatment contains the same beneficial factors as the original Headstart formulation and additionally includes four minerals: molybdenum, copper, sulphur and phosphorous. These enhance root formation, development and growth, thereby further speeding up germination and improving establishment rates.

All 2014 MM and Designer grass seed mixtures are now treated as standard with Headstart Gold.
