Campaign Offers Bloomin’ Good Margin Mix

Limagrain, in partnership with the Campaign for the Farmed Environment (CFE) and BASF, is offering a discount on the new Field Margin seeds mixture.

Launched in July to mark Pollinator Awareness week, Field Margin Mix contains UK native wild flowers and has been developed to provide an outstanding habitat for pollinators.

In line with Campaign for
the Farmed Environment
objectives, Field Margin Mix has been specifically designed for farmers who wish to increase biodiversity without compromising productivity. It contains grass species and a proportion of UK native wild flowers.

“This combination will support pollinators, beneficial insects and other invertebrates and will therefore benefit other wildlife, from small mammals and ground-nesting birds to bats and barn owls,” says Limagrain’s Martin Titley.

“It can be sown in autumn or spring. It can be used within CAP greening as a fallow Ecological Focus Area or for some of the new Countryside Stewardship options.”

Farmers can collect discount vouchers for Field Margin Mix from the Limagrain stand at the CLA Game Fair, Harewood, near Leeds on 31 July to 2 August. They can also see demonstration plots of the crop on the stand.

“We are very pleased to be able to support the Campaign for the Farmed Environment,” adds Mr Titley. “Working together with CFE and BASF, we are confident that that we are helping farmers to protect the environment, encourage wildlife and farm productivity.”
