COUNTRY FIELD FORAGE 2482 ORGANIC

PDF DATASHEET

Profile

Because of its high Alfalfa content COUNTRY Field forage 2482 is suitable for drier soils. The combination of Alfalfa, Red clover, Timothy, Meadow fescue, Perennial and Hybrid ryegrass compliment each other and provide high quality green fodder with perfect suitability for cutting. The high content of legumes ensures nitrogen fixation and makes it indispensible for a healthy organic crop rotation.

  • Mixing partners complement each other
  • High protein content
  • Good ensilability

All organic mixtures are produced with 100 % organic content, if possible, in accordance with the EU Organic Farming Regulation 2018/848. For mixtures with at least 70% organic content, the farmer must obtain approval from his inspection body for the use of the conventional content before sowing, starting with production in January 2022. We aim to use at least 2 varieties per ripening group for mix proportions of more than 20 % of one species and for German ryegrass. The choice of varieties may vary depending on production. If individual species or varieties are not available, they are replaced by equivalent ones. The seed strengths are calculated for an optimal seedbed; in case of poor external conditions - such as insufficient seedbed, late sowing date, insufficient nutrient supply and unfavourable weather - the seed strengths should be adjusted upwards.

All specified informations, recommendations and representations mentioned here are made to the best of our knowledge and belief, but without guarantee of completeness or accuracy. We cannot guarantee that the properties described are repeatable. All information is provided as an aid to decision-making. Deutsche Saatveredelung AG excludes adhesion for damage or claims for damages, resulting of the use for the variety specified in this description. Mixture compositions may change if individual varieties are not available. As of 12/2021. Subject to change without notice.
