Vetch/Rye Plus

Legume cereal mixtures - Energy crops

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.


75 % Rye
15% Italian ryegrass
