TerraLife® - BetaMaxx organic

Cover crop

The cover crop mixture for beet and vegetables.

TerraLife® BetaMaxx is a fantastic mixture of small and large grain legumes in combination with non-legumes especially developed for cultivation of different kinds of beet and vegetables. The balanced mixture with its deep and widespread roots is of benefit for crop rotation. BetaMaxx is able to break up the compact soil, can also fix nitrogen and provide an optimum soil condition. The common vetch has a positive impact on soil bacteria that protect the plants against soil borne pathogens. Farmers experiences have shown that the sugar content of beet has increased in contrast to oil radish as a cover crop.
