TerraLife® - BetaMaxx DT

The cover crop mix for sugar beet cultivation

BetaMaxx DT is a balanced blend carefully selected for sugar beet cultivation which can be used as an alternative to the N-Fixx mix if the crop rotation or climate does not favour the use of buckwheat. Common vetch has a beneficial effect on soil bacteria which protect plants from pathogens. BetaMaxx DT enables beets to be grown the following year without ploughing. This improves sowing accuracy and can reduce the incidence of forked roots. Early indications are that this mix can significantly increase sugar beet yields compared with using oil radish as a cover crop. BetaMaxx DT can also be used in vegetable cultivation and combined oilseed rape and beet rotations because it contains no cruciferous plants. Swap to BetaSola for areas infected with Heterodera schachtii.
