Cultivation recommendations:

Recommended sowing rate 60 - 80 grains/m²
Sowing depth 4 - 6 cm; good water supply essential
Sowing period Middle of March to end of April
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.
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; if necessary roll after sowing
Harvest At harvest pods and stems should be brown, the grains hard. Optimal moisture for harvesting 14-16%. Use protective setting fo threshing to avoid broken grains and micro cracks.
