MM10 Grass Seed

HEADSTART GOLD - Limagrain

MM10 Grass Seed is an alternative to the traditional 80:20 Fescue and Bent mixture due to the inclusion of the Slender Creeping Red Fescue cultivar Aporina.

The combination of Fescues and Browntop Bent in this seed mix produce a fine, dense sward which due to the high proportion of rhizomatous, creeping species is tolerant to close mowing. The seed mix is resistant to disease with good wear tolerance and year round colour. It is a good alternative to the traditional 80/20 mixture for construction, overseeding, renovating and repairing high quality greens and tees.
