Examples of crop rotation - with reference to diversification in cultivation (AD) and ecological priority areas (ÖVF) when greening

Crop rotation examples

Crop rotation with maize or beet and winter grain

Until nowWinter grainWinter grainMaize/beet 
NewWinter grainWinter grainCatch cropMaize/beet

CD (cultivation diversification): 3 cultures are present if the second grain type > 5 % (< 75 % / > 5 % of the field area)
EPA (ecological priority areas): implementation with catch crop cultivation (factor 0.3) on at least 16.6 % of the entire field area

Crop rotation exclusively with winter crops

CD (cultivation diversification): 3 cultures are present (< 75 % / > 5 %)
EPA (ecological priority areas): catch crop cultivation (factor 0.3) on at least 16.6 % of the entire field area
Disadvantage: summer crop corresponding to the catch crop on at least 16.6 % necessary (possible advantage: weed grass control)

CD (cultivation diversification): 3 cultures (< 75 % / > 5 %)
EPA (ecological priority areas): set-aside on at least 5 % of the entire field area, thus both a third culture and EPA present

CD (cultivation diversification): 3 cultures (< 75 % / > 5 %)
EPA (ecological priority areas): Legumes (factor 0.7) on at least 7.15 % of the entire field area, thus both a third culture (CD) as well as > 5 % EPA present
or legumes (factor 0.7) on at least 5 % of the entire field area with prior catch crop cultivation (factor 0.3), but pay attention:
Legumes and catch crop are included in different application years - e.g. catch crop 2015 / legumes 2016 and annual change of areas necessary.

The examples specified only illustrate a few of the many options. There already measures in place such as landscape elements or buffer strips that are not included in the model calculations for ecological priority areas.
