Cultivation recommendations:

Recommended sowing rate 50 grains/m²
Inoculation Inoculate seed with suitable rhizobia before sowing
Sowing depth 4 - 8 cm; good water supply essential
Sowing period End of April to end of May; soil temperature 7°C, no frost
Fertilization No N-fertilization necessary. Depending on the nutrient content of the soil and nutrient extraction 40-60 kg P₂O₅/ha, 100-130 kg K₂O/ha and about 20-50 kg MgO/ha are advised. A neutral soil pH is ideal.
Crop protection Use herbicides during pre-emergence or mechanically hoe or harrow the field for weed control. Post-emergence herbicide application specifically against grasses is possible. When considering usage of fungizides and insecticides mind the damage threshhold.
Sowing method Single or double row spacing is beneficial for the yield
Harvest At harvest pods and stems should be brown, the grains hard. Optimal moisture for harvesting 14-16%. Ease of combine due to high stiffness.
