Wildflower meadows and flower strips

Familiarise yourself with our highly productive mixes

At a time when there are increasingly fewer species in the cultivated landscape, wildflower meadows are an important element for providing game with an attractive food supply all year round. Our wildflower meadow and flower strip mixes are made up of highly productive type compositions for different sowing times and usages.

Wildflower meadow

Wildflower meadows can be annual or perennial. If possible, a wildflower meadow should be cultivated alternately with conventional agricultural crops and the boundaries should be broadly distributed. It is particularly important to create permanent refuge areas that will then last for many years as breeding areas. Only there can wild animals find sufficient peace and protection to breed and rear their young.

Sown by the beginning of August, the wildflower meadows also make outstanding winter catch crops.

AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG, in collaboration with the Landesjägerschaft Niedersachsen, has developed various seed mixes and tried them out in practice.

Flower strips

With their many species of vegetation, flower strips provide valuable living space for bees, insects and wild animals, and increase the attractiveness of agriculture. For this reason, the cultivation of flower strips and flowered areas is supported at state level within the framework of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). In order to participate in these agri-environmental schemes, precise requirements must be met with regard to sowing time, period of use, crop protection and fertilising, as well as the make-up of the respective seed mix.

AGRAVIS supplies various mixes that are eligible for grants in order to create flower strips and conservation headlands in North Rhine-Westphalia and annual flower strips (BS 11/12) in Lower Saxony and Bremen.

The relevant authorities provide information about the exact requirements of the agri-environmental schemes. AGRAVIS cannot accept liability for the granting of subsidy premiums.
