A cultivation system which provides biogas plant operators with an attractive alternative to silage maize due to its many benefits. All components are sown at the same time, which saves time and money. Legumes and cereals grow together in harmony and the undersowing provides a further yield when the whole crop silage (WCS) has been harvested. These combinations greatly improve the humus balance in intensive biogas crop rotations.
If a certain variety is unavailable it will be replaced with equivalents.
