Advantages

... the nitrogen supplier

  • Due to the symbiosis with nodule bacteria, large amounts of atmospheric nitrogen are bound and made available for plant growth.
  • Good weed suppression and intensive rooting performance due to the interaction of the components, especially the small-grained field bean AVALON roots deeply and improves the soil structure
  • Due to atmospheric nitrogen fixation, promotion of good soil structure and crumb formation beneficial for the following crop
  • Use: for fresh feeding as a high-quality protein fodder in late summer to autumn, for nitrogen generation in crop rotation or as a side-seed in oilseed rape
  • Optimal CO2 footprint
  • Also suitable for sites with low nitrogen availability
