With the new CAP reform starting this year, part of your payment will be on ‘greening’ measures. If you farm over 15ha of arable land, you will need to ensure at least 5% of that land is meet by an Ecological Focus Area (EFA). One of the options is to sow a catch or cover crop*. DSV have specifically produced two mixtures which will meet this criteria.
*Catch crop needs be sown by 20th August and in the ground until at least 14th October. A cover crop needs to be sown by 1st October and in the ground until at least 15th January.
