COVER CROP MIXES When used correctly, cover crops can help to maintain and enhance soil health, mitigate against weed, pest and weather challenges and contribute to CAP greening measures. Agrii has been conducting trials in cover crops over recent years and initial results have been very positive but there is still much to learn and understand, which is why we are investing resources in ongoing trials to identify the critical steps to the successful utilisation of cover crops. The species, and as importantly, the varieties used, within our cover crop mixtures have been selected to perform specific tasks, but with agronomic considerations at the fore. Agrii cover crop mixtures are produced in our own facility at Ingham, near Bury St Edmunds, which enables us to control the quality of our products and gives us the flexibility to produce bespoke mixtures as well as the standard mixtures. For more information on Agrii and bespoke mixes please get in touch with your local Agrii contact. We also have an insight guide and brochure on cover crops, containing more information and results from our trials work. Please let us know if you’d like to receive a hard or e-copy of these documents. TURFMASTER Supplementary services Supplementary services PERENNIAL RYEGRASS (Lolium perenne) The most widely used species. Recent breeding has meant that although associated with hard wearing situations, finer leafed denser growing varieties are suitable for finer lawns. CHEWINGS FESCUE (Festuca rubra commutata) Prefers slightly acidic sites. Compact form is ideal for finely mown greens and lawns. More disease resistant and better colouring up in the spring than Slender CRF. SLENDER CREEPING RED FESCUE (F. rubra litoralis) These are more drought tolerant and have better autumn colour than other fescues. Very hardy. Intermediate in habit between Chewings and Strong types. STRONG CREEPING RED FESCUE (F. rubra rubra) Spreads by rhizomes so is suited to locations which suffer erosion and require stabilisation. SHEEPS FESCUE (F. ovina) Fine, waxy leaves with greeny blue colour. Ideal for sites of low fertility undergoing reclamation. BENT (Agrostis spp.) Use in situations which are closely mown. SMOOTH STALKED MEADOW GRASS (Poa pratensis) Can be as hard wearing as perennial ryegrass but takes a bit longer to establish. The STRI suggest leaving at least a year between sowing and usage.
