Advantages

... for sustainable maize cropping

  • Grass blend of Lolium multiflorum (tetraploid) and perennial ryegrass (diploid)  for use as undersown crop in maize
  • After the maize harvest, the grass continues to develop and binds available nitrogen
  • viterra® UNTERSAAT stabilizes humus balance even during tight maize crop rotations
  • Optimal for carbon farming and regenerative agriculture
  • Effectively protects against wind and water erosion in winter
  • Early growing Lolium multiflorum combined with late growing perennial ryegrass guarantees a high crop reliability
  • Increases soil sustainability and reduces dirt on the roads during harvest
