PREMIUM will give you:
- Improved sustainability of spring cereal cropping
- 7 months of clean worm-free grazing (from September to March)
- Winter cover for wildlife
- Improved soil structure/texture
- Reduced soil erosion over winter
- Increased soil fertility
This mixture has been specifically designed as a cover crop for undersowing spring-sown cereals as part of your cereal tillage crop rotations.
Used under our spring SMART Cereal Blends or our Combicrops®, PREMIUM will improve the soil structure and capture any residual nitrogen and other plant nutrients, thus increasing soil fertility.
The carefully selected grasses used in PREMIUM will not grow through the cereal crop and so will not cause problems at harvest.
PREMIUM increases the productivity of your farm by providing you with worm-free grazing from autumn (after the cereal is harvested) until the following spring (when you plough for the next cereal crop).
Available in 15 Kilo bags, as Organic seed, or as Conventional seed.
Sow at 4 to 5 Kilos per Acre.
PREMIUM as a Winter Cover Crop (SW6)
PREMIUM can also be used as a winter cover crop, sown after winter-sown cereals have been harvested. On cultivated land vulnerable to nitrate leaching or on land draining directly into a watercourse, it will provide a dense cover that protects the soil from erosion and runoff. It is, therefore, suitable for Environmental Scheme SW6
