TerraLife® - MaizePro organic

Cover crop

Balanced, partially winter hardy cover crop mixtures.

As well as providing good, deep root penetration, the components in the MaizePro mix help to stabilise the soil structure and produce large quantities of soil-enriching humus. The mixture is ideal as feed for earthworms and delivers an attractive habitat for insects. If MaizePro is successfully established, tilling to a depth of 5 – 7 cm for the sowing of Maize seed is sufficient. This preserves the capillary action of the soil and so ensures sufficient water for germination. In regions that are prone to spring droughts, water consumption by the cover crop should be stopped in good time by mechanical means. The hardy components prevent soil erosion.
