Effect on insects

The rapid establishment of TABOR single-cut Alexandria clover and fenugreek enables rapid biomass production in the autumn.
The complementary nature of these 2 legumes effectively limits the development of weeds and actively disturbs rape insects.

Easy to sow

Plante-Compagne COLZA N°6 is made up of species and varieties with a low TGW. This mixture can be used whatever the type of sowing (1 or 2 passes) and the seeder chosen (conventional, double weft, micro-granulator, etc.).

No risk of aphanomyces

Plante-Compagne COLZA N°6 is strongly recommended for plots where legumes susceptible to aphanomyces are grown in rotation: peas, lentils, etc.
The varieties and species that make up this mix are not hosts to aphanomyces and therefore limit the multiplication of the inoculum of this fungus.

A highly complementary combination with faba beans

The complementary nature of the species and varieties that make up Plante-Compagne COLZA N°6 (plant habit, root system, etc.) enhances the action of the faba bean, thus improving the success of the oilseed rape.
