At Drummonds we aim to formulate agri/forage grass seed mixtures which will deliver superior livestock performance. We continually keep abreast of research being conducted within Ireland by our Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine and by Teagasc. Working closely with a number of farmers (customers) who are excellent grassland managers and who are continually pushing to improve grassland performance on their farms ensures we stay well grounded and focused. In addition we keep an eye on relevant grassland research in Europe and further afield.
In the case of amenity grasses we aim to formulate and produce the grass seeds mixture which will be ‘the best fit’ for the purpose at hand. This may be an ornamental garden; a hard-wearing back lawn; a wild flower strip; a football pitch which is being used all year round; or a horse gallops. Our grass seed specialists keep abreast of the latest research in this field.
One of our major strengths of Drummonds when it comes to grass seed mixture formulation is our independence. We deal with a large number of grass seed breeders, marketing agents, various brokers and suppliers. We are not ‘tied’ to sell a certain tonnage of a particular variety for a grass seed breeder despite the fact that there may be better varieties available. Thankfully we have managed to maintain the flexibility and credibility to only source the leading varieties which will deliver superior performance. This independence has stood to us over the years and is why so many of our customers trust in our ‘Green Acres’ brand.
We distribute our Green Acres grass seeds nationally through sales agents, agri-merchants and co-ops. In addition to supplying our own proven range of mixtures we have the capability to blend ‘specials’ – prescription mixtures customized to meet specific requirements. We can deliver direct to a farm anywhere in the country, generally within a short few days of the order being placed. Being wholesalers, we invoice through your local merchant/supplier.
