Additional information

Special characteristics For sugar beet and vegetable cultivation, deep root channels, positive for soil bacteria and stabilisation of the soil structure.
Seed bed preparation The sowing depth is max. 2 - 3 cm. When preparing the seedbed, make sure that the requirements of fine seeds are taken into account (fine-crumbly, well reconsolidated seedbed). In order to save water, sowing should be done immediately after the combine threshing with flat tools. A combination of tillage and drilling (e.g. with mulch seed drills) is ideal. The use of rollers (e.g. Güttler roller) in combination with spreading or drilling technology can be very useful and efficient. Very good straw distribution is important. In the case of high straw quantities, care must be taken to ensure sufficient nitrogen compensation.
Sowing rate In case of poor external conditions, such as insufficient seedbed, late sowing date, insufficient nutrient supply and unfavourable weather, seed rates should be adjusted upwards.
Date for sowing The sowing times are to be adapted regionally. If, due to weather conditions or from the point of view of labour economics, rapid sowing is not possible, any advantage of the volunteer cereals must be prevented by appropriate tillage measures. Special attention should be paid to the swath area when straw has been harvested.
General cultivation instructions If sown too early and under stress conditions (especially drought stress), some plant species (buckwheat, mustard, oil radish, phacelia) may form seeds prematurely. In these cases, timely mechanical stopping of growth is recommended to prevent possible seed ripening. If the mixtures are left over winter, a mulching pass at the end of the vegetation is recommended to allow a safe freezing and even incorporation in spring. As a matter of principle, the vegetation should not be worked in green.

We produce the organic COUNTRY and TerraLife® mixtures according to the requirements, rules and regulations of the EU and the guidelines of individual member states. Our comprehensive portfolio includes mixtures with a minimum of 70% organic components. If a certain species or variety is unavailable it will be replaced with equivalents. The EU guidelines for organic mixtures vary from country to country, therefore, the usage of organic mixtures with conventional components must be clarified with the responsible regulatory authority of the country for organic seeds in advance, and if requested, approved.
