Binds easily avaible nitrogen, which can be successfully used by post-harvest plants
Raises protein content in the first spring green fodder
Sowed with rye or triticale does not require separate cultivation and fertilization
Low soil requirements
Great for aftercrop
High nutritional valuse
Agricultural and utility characteristics
Soils of the rye complex.
Place in rotation
Sowed with rye or triticale.
All treatments are done under cereals and only nitrogen doses can be a little lower
The first decade of September. The distance between the rows should be 12.5 cm and the depth of seed placement is about 3 cm (not too deep for the plant to rise).
Amount of sowing
For seeds production of 25-30 kg / ha. On the green mass 45-50 kg / ha.
It does not require separate protection except for the attention paid to broadbean weevil
Collect when the pods ripen. Field should be monitored at the end of maturation. The first cracking of the pods is a signal that you should not delay the harvest. Rea yields depend on the technology and it could be about 8 dt/ha. For green mass it should be harvested at the beginning of the rye earing. Larger admixtures of vetch seeds (often used in practice) may cause easier lodging of the mixture and prolong the flowering of the vetch, which until the maturity of the rye is usually still green.
