Limagrain UK: Previewing new cultivars
Posted on Thursday, 4th January 2018
Visitors to the Limagrain stand at BTME 2018 can expect a sneak peak of two new innovative cultivars for the golf market and also be in with a chance of winning tickets to a top international sporting event.
Ahead of their spring launch, Aporina and Caldris will be showcased for the very first time at the show.
Aporina is a Slender Creeping Red Fescue. It is a very dense, superb all-round cultivar that performs well in both a golf green environment and fairways and tees. In both areas, Aporina has very good disease resistance and will be introduced into a number of Limagrain’s golf green mixtures - MM8 and MM10 and golf fairway mixtures - MM13 and MM22.
Caldris is a Chewings Fescue which has very similar attributes to Aporina in that it performs extremely well in both golf greens and golf fairways. Caldris will be introduced into Limagrain’s main golf green mixtures and the non-Ryegrass fairways and tees mixtures.
In addition, Limagrain will be running a free prize draw to win tickets to a top international sporting event in the summer.
More than 140 exhibitors will be in attendance at BTME 2018, from 23-25 January.
Taking place at the Harrogate Convention Centre in North Yorkshire, the leading names in the turf management industry will be showcasing their latest products and innovations.
Alongside Continue to Learn and GolfBIC, BTME 2018 is set to be the largest turf management exhibition in Europe.
