The combination of vetch, rye and grass provides impressive biomass, stable yields and improved biodiversity. Grass not only increases first cut yields, but also supplies additional high yields when sown as a secondary crop after the first cut. A vetch/rye mix without grass is ideal for very dry sites; this mixture is also available with hybrid rye.
If a certain variety is unavailable it will be replaced with equivalents.
