viterra® Cover crop blend

MAIS STRUKTUR

 ...loosens compacted soils

Benefits:

  • The combination of frost-resistant and non frost-resistant components protects nutrients and the topsoil until spring.
  • The interplay of broad and deep roots, together with the enormous taproot of the STINGER melioration radish, leaves behind a loosened soil structure with increased infiltration capacity.
  • Summer vetch, lupine and clover are high-quality legumes that bring new nitrogen into the crop rotation.
  • The large number of selected species leads to a revitalisation of the soil and promotes the build-up of organic matter.
  • Rough oats promote mycorrhizal fungi, which also help the following maize to use the soil's phosphorus reserves more effectively
  • With about 35 % hardy components for long-lasting soil protection
  • Suitable for sites with low nitrogen availability
