The nematode-reducing mix for sugar beets and potato cultivation
The species richness of BetaSola ensures good structure and thereby differs considerably from the cultivation of a single nematode-resistant cover crop type. The combination of species has a wide spectrum of activity. In this way, the various nematode-resistant oil radish varieties help to reduce beet nematodes(Heterodera schachtii) and Trichodorus. Furthermore, multi-resistant oil radish is resistant to root-knot nematodes. An additional advantage of the three oil radish varieties is that they have different growth periods, so that the nematodes are attracted for the longest possible duration. The mix partner bristle oat also reduces soil nematodes (Pratylenchus). Vetch and Egyptian clover fix nitrogen and promote soil condition.
Cover crop species: Winter cover crop
Egyptian clover, fodder radish: Black Jack (nematode resistant), Radetzky (multiresistant), Reset (nematode resistant), niger, bristle oat, common vetch
If a certain variety is unavailable it will be replaced with equivalents.
