PremiumSaat

The right seed for different requirements

AGRAVIS PremiumSaat mixes are perfectly matched to different location requirements and use conditions. They are based on recommendations by the Chambers of Agriculture. There are also mixes available for marshland.

There is a suitable mix from the PremiumSaat mix range as per the agriculture chambers’ specification and recommendations for all needs based on location requirements and conditions of use. What are known as G mixes offer many variations for the permanent grassland segment, which achieve the best result under a highly extensive variety of conditions. The arable farming mixes (A mixes) can basically be cultivated at all arable locations. Depending on the individual mixes, these offer useful lives ranging from one vegetation period (one year) to more than two main years of use (perennial) in both feed grass mixes and clover mixes.

Tip from the experts

More than one variety should be included in the mixes per species and main component maturity group (mixing proportions > 10%) to improve sward resistance to a variety of weather-related and use-related stress factors.
