As well as providing good, deep root penetration, the 13 components in the MaizePro DT mix help to stabilise the soil structure and produce large quantities of soil-enriching humus. If MaizePro is successfully established, tilling to a depth of 5 – 7 cm for the sowing of Maize seed is sufficient. This preserves the capillary action of the soil and so ensures sufficient water for germination. In regions that are prone to spring droughts, water consumption by the cover crop should be stopped in good time by mechanical or chemical means. The hardy components ensure lasting protection from erosion. It is also available without buckwheat.
