TerraLife® - AquaPro without buckwheat

TerraLife® - AquaPro

For water protection areas and oilseed rape rotations

The legume and crucifer-free mix AquaPro was developed specifically for water protection areas in collaboration with practitioners and water protection advisers. It does not produce nitrogen itself, but protects mineralised nitrogen from leaching. Species like niger seed, buckwheat or phacelia grow well and produce a lot of biomass. At the same time, AquaPro offers very good erosion protection and improves the soil biology. The N-loss during AquaPro cultivation is lower compared with fallowing or a mustard single crop. The mix is ideal as a cover crop before grain legumes and oilseed rape crop rotations.
