Cultivation recommendations:

Recommended sowing rate 65-70 grains/m²
Inoculation Inoculate seed with suitable rhizobia before sowing
Sowing depth 2-4 cm on heavy, 4-5 cm on light soils
Sowing period Middle of April until the middle of May; soil temperature ~10°C
Fertilization No N-fertilization necessary. At a grain yield of 30 dt/ha a fertilization of 48 kg P₂O₅/ha, 51 kg K₂O/ha and 15 kg MgO/ha is advised. At diverging yields the amount of fertilizer should be adjusted to the withdrawal.
Crop protection Weed control: Approved broad-spectrum herbicides during pre-emergence
Sowing method Precision sowing or drilling possible, row distance may vary depending on sowing technique (17-50 cm)
Harvest Early to the middle of September by combine harvester (flexible cutting unit), moisture 13-14%, ideal setup of threshing drum, threshing concave and sieve are crucial to minimize risk of broken grains.
