Innovation in crop rotation
BIODIVERSE MIXTURE OF SEEDS FOR TEMPORARY RAINFED GRASSLANDS
. It is a range designed to sow plots in crop rotation with cereals.
. Considering that the vast majority of farms in southern Portugal practice crop-livestock farming systems, ESPECIAL POUSIO provides a cheap and effective solution to increase production.
Reasons for sowing
. Improves the quality and quantity of forage produced for grazing.
. Fixes a significant amount of atmospheric nitrogen to benefit the following crop.
. Improves soil structure and increases the organic matter content.
ESPECIAL POUSIO Handling
. Grazing can begin in mid-November/December, once the plants’ development and soil conditions permit it
. If the aim is to keep the grassland for the following year, animals should be removed during the flowering period
. Ensure that at the end of summer dry forage is consumed before the new autumn rains
