Recovery mixture is hailed a success

Recovery mixture is hailed a success

An amenity mixture, which was developed specifically for oversowing onto sports pitches to facilitate the fast repair of worn or damaged areas, has proved to be a great success. The mixture, called MM 75R, can be sown in the winter or spring and according to Limagrain’s Matt Gresty the choice of one variety in particular has set the blend apart from others available within the industry.

“Our MM 75R mixture contains a variety called Matrix which germinates and grows at lower temperatures than other grasses. Consequently, it provides groundsmen with an opportunity to restore ground cover on pitches and racecourses during the early part of the year.”

Mr Gresty points out that since its launch in 2012 a combination of further trial work and commercial experience has continued to demonstrate the unique qualities of the mixture. “Those groundsmen that trialled MM75R last year were very impressed by its performance and the consequent improvement it gave the pitches during the second half of the playing season.”

It is worth stressing that MM 75R is treated with Headstart the user-friendly seed treatment which enhances the speed of germination and helps to deliver fast establishment and all important ground cover.

If you would like more information on MM 75R then please contact us and reserve a copy of our 2013 MM catalogue which will be available from mid-January. This catalogue will also provide full details on the other top quality mixtures in the MM range.
