Soil fertility

One of the most important properties of our soils when it comes to cultivation, is fertility. On fertile soil, high-quality plants such as cereals, vegetables or fodder and energy crops, can be produced sustainably by our farmers. The yield capacity of the soil is the main characteristic of soil fertility. The positive effect of diverse crop rotations and organic fertilisation, can create a buffer in the soil. This buffer continuously provides nutrients for plant growth, and thus maintains soil fertility.
