New game cover and environmental crops guide published

The new HiBird Gamecover and Environmental Crops guide is now available from Limagrain UK. Containing information on a wide range of game cover crop seed and environmental stewardship seed mixtures, the free publication sets out how to establish successful game cover crops, including new  compact maize variety, Maritimo, and cobless maize variety, Ademio.

 

Limagrains Martin Titley explains: This essential reading guide delivers advice on how to create the best cover to suit each site and the end requirements of the grower. It also provides crop solutions for difficult sites, be that down to pest damage, soil or weeds.

 

Included in the guide this year are two new maize varieties. Maritimo, which is a compact variety ideally suited for later sowings. And Ademio, which has very few cobs, thereby helping to reduce problems with rats and badgers as it doesnt provide a food source for them.

 

There are game cover mixtures suitable for field margins and buffer strips, and also for larger areas. The guide includes information on popular game cover mixtures such as Setter, Labrador and Springer, as well as maize, sorghum, quinoa and sunflowers. The environmental mixtures include wild bird seed mixtures, such as Birdfeeder and WM1.  These are specific combinations selected to ensure they meet the requirements set out for environmental stewardship schemes.
