FAQ

What are cover crops?
Cover crops or also called intermediate crops are plants that are usually sown between the two main crops. They are not harvested, and their long-term use increases the potential of the fields to achieve higher yields. Cover crops can meet the requirements of support schemes for ecologically oriented areas.
What are the benefits of using cover crops?
The use of cover crops can bring many benefits to your fields. They have been proven to help: improve soil structure, protect soil from erosion, suffocate weeds, preserve soil moisture, as well as increase the availability of accessible forms of micro and macro elements of plants.
What are the benefits of using a seed mix compared to using a single crop?
Each cover crop used alone can contribute greatly to improving soil health, and the right combination of several types of cover crops increases their overall effectiveness.
What is important to know when choosing cover crops?
You need to consider several basic factors when choosing the right cover crops for your field. First you need to determine the purpose you’ll use them for, for example, whether you want to increase organic matter, protect the soil from erosion, add nitrogen to it or more. It is necessary to take into account both the crop rotation and the climatic features of the region.
How to determine our goals so we can choose the right cover crops?
Defining what we want to achieve is always a starting point when choosing cover crops. In order to define your goals clearly, you first need to know the current state of your soil, as well as its characteristics and features. For example, if your soil is low in nitrogen, then your goal will undoubtedly be to choose suitable cover crops to increase its amount. Properly defining the objectives when using cover crops is the key to achieving optimal results.
Which are the most suitable cover crops?
The choice of suitable crops should always depend on your main objectives, the condition of the soil and the climatic conditions in which they will develop.
When is the best time to plant cover crops?

Choosing the right time to plant cover crops is crucial for their optimal development. The correct timing will prevent the insemination of both cover crops and sprouted weeds. We recommend avoiding periods with very low temperatures, as well as those with prolonged drought.
