Britannia rules with MM60 grass seed As one of the oldest professional football teams in the world, Stoke City FC has long-standing traditions and standards to uphold. It is essential that the club has a playing surface in line with its historic reputation, which is why head groundsman Andrew Jackson has selected Limagrain UK's MM60 grass seed. This is a 100 per cent Ryegrass formula which is ideal for renovation and divot repair. Renowned for its extremely fast germination, MM60 has a high wear tolerance combined with a high disease resistance giving fantastic aesthetic qualities; something which Andrew is particularly pleased with. Andrew initially trialled the seed at Stoke City's academy set-up two seasons ago. After impressive results, he made the decision to apply it to all nine pitches - which are a combination of training areas and pitches then added the pitch at The Britannia. It is a decision which Andrew believes has really paid off.
