Balanced, partly hardy cover crop for maize crop rotations
MaizePro DT is the ideal mix for maize crop rotations. It selectively supports the formation of mycorrhiza and improves the soil structure. The intensive root penetration creates new root channels, which help the maize particularly during periods of drought. The hardy components guarantee 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 sowing flowering buffer strips.
