As a professional amenity-turf manager you can rely on DLF Select to deliver the high purity seed stocks

End-to-end quality control - our investment in your future 

To develop DLF Select we have evaluated every aspect of our processes to produce more high-performance, high-purity seed.

We have selected our best  varieties, placed them for production with the most skilled growers and the cleanest fields. Specialist DLF employees work to clean the seed on dedicated cleaning lines to ensure optimal purity.

This is why we call this ‘DLF Select’. Our integrated approach ensures that you can rely on DLF Select to deliver the highest purity seed, season after season, in the quantities you need. 

The process begins at the R&D stage. We choose only high-performance cultivars for the DLF Select programme. And then only the best varieties go forward for production.

Reliability and precision you can depend on

Pure seed grows into pure, weed-free turf that provides the best turf managers with absolute precision – a perfect bounce, a rod-straight roll of the ball, or an exquisite landscape project. To achieve this level of turf  perfection you need seed of exceptional purity; you need DLF Select.

You also need to know that you can obtain this seed, year after year, season after season. That’s the promise of DLF Select.

Look for the label

DLF Select seed bears the distinctive logo. It's your guarantee of absolute purity
