MaizePro DT (deep tillage) is the ideal mix for corn crop rotations. It selectively supports the formation of mycorrhiza in a corn rotation, and as a result improves the soil structure. The soils become more water stable, have an improved bearing capacity and are easier to work. The intensive root penetration properties of the components create new root channels, which help the corn particularly during periods of drought. The hardy components guarantee highly efficient erosion protection right into spring. After a successful cover crop, the soil requires working only to a depth of the soil horizon receiving the corn seed. In this way, the capillarity is maintained, ensuring water availability for germination.

The TerraLife cover crop mixes were developed n Germany by a company with over 90 years’ experience in cover crops (DSV). There 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.
