The cover crop mix Rigol DT is extremely effective in penetrating compacted soils as the plant types in the mix demonstrate intensive rooting activity. Numerous root channels are formed, which are used by the follow-on crop to rapidly reach rooting depth. At the same time, Rigol DT ensures good soil shade and rapid fine root penetration of the A-strata, as well as good above-ground biomass production. The legume fraction leads to good humus and nutrient accumulation. The low C/N-ratio allows rapid N-availability for the follower crop. Rigol DT is also recommended for soils with poor iron availability (e.g. pH > 7).
