Your soil will thank you if you take good care of it. Ground cover and erosion control are top priority. By using cover crops your crop rotation will be loosened and the soil life activated. The right choice of plant species can break up compactions and provide the soil with nitrogen - this increases soil fertility immensly. Save an extra task with the seeder and bring out your cover crops with APV spreaders or Pneumatic Seeders.
Whether biological or conventional farming - when it comes to cover crop cultivation, all farmers agree: It's worth it. Using cover crops promotes soil health and soil fertility and with it you can exploit the full potential of your soil.
Advantages of cover crop cultivation:
- Suppressing weeds and pests (conservation of herbicides)
- Erosion-reducing effect through soil coverage and improving crumb structure
- Increasing biological activity and stimulating soil life
- Promoting humus content by enriching soil with easily biodegradable organic substances
- Producing animal feed or green manure
An important usage for cover crop is nurse crop seeding. Again, the main focus is on the soil coverage for erosion reduction.The growth of cover crops and nurse crops should be coordinated so that they do not suppress each other.Grain cultivation often uses clover grass mixtures, which are used as fodder plants after harvesting the main crop.In viticulture, however, mostly mixtures of phacelia, buckwheat and pea peas are used.
Since maize cultivation often leaves the soil uncovered for a longer period of time, nurse crops plays an important role.The soil transported by wind or water in heavy rainfall (especially on slopes) is not to be underestimated.In order to be able to counteract this erosion, grasses are often sown between the maize rows.
