TerraLife® - MaizePro DT

TerraLife® - MaizePro DT

Balanced, partly hardy cover crop for intensive maize crop rotations

MaizePro DT is the ideal mix for maize crop rotations. It selectively supports the formation of mycorrhiza in a maize rotation, and as a result improves the soil structure. The soils become more water stable, have an improved bearing capacity and are easier to work. The intensive root penetration properties of the components create new root channels, which help the maize particularly during periods of drought. The hardy components guarantee highly efficient erosion protection right into spring. After a successful cover crop, the soil only requires working to a depth of the soil horizon receiving the maize seed. In this way,  the capillarity is maintained, ensuring water availability for germination. MaizePro DT is also suitable for the sowing of flowering buffer strips.
