TerraLife® - The special Cover Crop Programme

TerraLife® cover crop mixes were developed to loosen up the soil between crop rotations and improve soil fertility and health. All mixes include a proportion of quick-growing species to effectively suppress weed growth. The species diversity guarantees good biodiversity and maximum variation in root development to ensure good soil penetration.

TerraLife® mixes deliver a number of benefits compared with single crop sowings:

  • Mixed rooting structures, restructuring the soil at all levels throughout the profile, alleviating compaction and soil pans
  • Produces a greater amount of various root exudates for enhanced microbial activity and humus production
  • Mobilises nutrients, supplies nutrients to other plants in the mixture and to the following crop
  • Increases biodiversity
  • Compensates for biotic and abiotic stress factors
  • Suppresses weeds
  • Reduces nutrient losses via soil erosion or leaching
  • Reduces risk of lodging by providing crop support
  • Enhances the landscape with flowers

 

TerraLife® mixes guarantee a great biological diversity:
