New regenerative grass seed Estate Range launched

A new regenerative Estate Range of grass seed has been launched to the market by Lincolnshire-based seed specialist Cope Seeds and Grain.

Launched to complement integrated farming systems, the range will enable landowners to reduce input expenditure, provide nutritious grazing for cattle and sheep, and improve soil health a top priority for UK farms.

The range of premium mixtures has been formulated in association with one of Europes leading grass breeders and brings together some of the top NIAB recommended varieties within each mixture.

Delivering quick establishment, high yielding, hardwearing mixtures, it focuses on high sugar content and digestibility as well as disease resistance, and persistence, if applicable.

Duncan Hendry, and Simon Travers, grass seed specialists at Cope Seeds and Grain have formulated the range, by drawing on over 80 years of experience, combined, in the seed industry.

We are also happy to make any unique modifications that you may have and offer recommendations and practical advice, says Duncan.

The new Estate Range is named after some of the well-known farming estates in Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties and can be viewed at
