Viterra®
viterra® BEISAAT GROB viterra® Cover crop blend


Advantages

... strong partner for rapeseed cultivation

  • Supports the vitality of the oilseed rape, optimises nutrient dynamics and diverts pests (turnip root fly, cabbage stem flea beetle) away from the main crop
  • Large amounts of atmospheric nitrogen are fixed, reducing nitrogen fertiliser requirements
  • AVALON effectively suppresses weeds with broad leaf foliage
  • Complete and early coverage of the soil protects the soil from erosion at all times
  • Companion plants freeze safely and the remaining mulch provides frost protection for the main crop
  • Growth management: targeted suppression of the main crop prevents overgrowth before winter
  • The particularly small-grained field bean AVALON offers advantages in sowing technique
