BetaMaxx creates the ideal preconditions for successful sugar beet cultivation. The mix includes deep-rooting species, that create deep channels allowing an easy root penetration for the following beets. This helps the beets to overcome dry periods. BetaMaxx allows beet cultivation per reduced tillage or no-till management. As there are no cruciferous plants present, BetaMaxx can also be used previous to vegetables. BetaMaxx is unsuitable for the biological control of Heterodera schachtii.
