TerraLife BetaMaxx is a balanced blend carefully selected for vegetable and sugar beet cultivation. Common vetch has a beneficial effect on soil bacteria, which protect plants for pathogens. BetaMaxx enables vegetables and beets to be grown the following year without ploughing. This improves sowing accuracy and can reduce the incidence of forked roots in sugar beets. Early indications are that this mix can significantly increase sugar beet yields compared with using oil radish as a cover crop. BetaMaxx can also be used in combined canola and beet rotations because no cruciferous plants are included.
- Good mix for vegetable and sugar beet cultivation
- Freezes off reliably
- Creates ideal seedbed conditions
- Included species: black oat, common vetch, Egyptian clover, field pea, linseed, phacelia
The TerralLife cover crop mixes were developed in Germany by a company with over 90 years’ experience in cover crops (DSV). These mixes were created to loosen up the soil between crop rotations and to improve soil fertility and health. The intelligent combination of different species leads to increased biodiversity above and especially below the soil surface. These mixes all include a proportion of quick-growing species to suppress weeds and stop soil erosion efficiently.
