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
Compensates for biotic and abiotic stress factors
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:
