Fane Valley take great pride in providing Northern Ireland Farmers with the best grasses available on the market and 2017 is no exception with all their grass seed mixtures having been carefully designed to ensure highly productive swards.

Three new varieties Moira an intermediate diploid, Glenarm a late diploid and Fintona an intermediate tetraploid variety have been included to the range to maximise spring growth, sward density, total production and quality.

Fane Valley’s 2017 seed mixtures will guarantee swards of outstanding quality that can be relied upon to deliver maximum output from your farm, whatever the weather and are excellent value for money.
