Plant density
For single crop cultivation: 80-100 germinating seeds per m². In mixtures for whole crop silage: ex. 200 germinating seeds of springbarley + 50 germinating seeds of forage pea per m².
Sowing time
Depending on climatic and soil conditions, from beginning of April. Well suited also as a catch crop sown after winter cereals.
Ease of combining
For green maturing the crop needs about 3 months until wax-ripe stage. The best harvest time would be with a dry matter of 30 to 40%.
