The high yield classic

The ForageRooter (Landsberger Mix) is a well-known, high-yield and protein-rich winter intercrop, developed in 1928 at the home of the DSV in Landsberg an der Warthe. The mix is made up of grasses (Italian ryegrass) and legumes (crimson clover and hairy vetch) and is suitable for almost every soil type. It delivers high green and dry matter yields with an excellent forage value and a high root mass. The growth can be pastured, cut, fed fresh, silaged or mulched as green fallow. The Landsberger Mix is currently experiencing a revival, as preservation of the soil fertility is becoming increasingly important for agriculturalists. Legumes and grasses lead to a permanent improvement in the soil characteristics. The organic residues remaining after breaking at the crumb level lead to humus enrichment and maintenance of the soil. Legumes ensure a nitrogen supply for the culture system. By planting Landsberger Mix, the biological activity of the soil is actively encouraged, the proportion of water-resistant crumb is visible increased, the infiltration is improved and the soil structure is established and stabilised.
