Seeding Alternatives for 2011 for sale

Seeding Alternatives for 2011

While the majority of seed sown will be standard turf mixes, the seed suppliers have all been working away to produce products to tempt you to try something new.

DLF Trifolium’s contribution is their iSeed, a seed coating developed by Yara and offered for a variety of turf mixes. We have seen the results of the iSeed sown in early September 2010 and it does give an enhanced growth of both the sward and the root, however by the time you have bought extra product to account for the weight of the coating, it is approximately double the cost per acre. The iSeed may work well for sports surfaces but possibly to expensive for turf growers.

Barenbrug have now released their RTF™ (Rhizomatous Tall Fescue) to all turf growers. The RTF has been restricted to a handful of turf growers since its initial launch but is now available to anyone. RTF™ is a new type of tall fescue, which produces rhizomes. A rhizome is a creeping stem or runner that extends outward from the main plant underground. The rhizome will send a shoot up to the soil surface while extending new roots downward, forming a new plant.

Scotts are less well known for their supply of grass seed but they are now making a big impact on the market. With a big history in producing amenity seed, Scotts are staying focused on their Proselect range, A variety of high spec cultivars with some great attributes for wear, drought, shade and cold tolerance. Scotts also have cultivars with very high salt tolerance for turf growers supplying coastal golf courses.
