Maize Under-Sowing Service
Leaving maize stubble over winter will not be an option in the future. Establishing a crop or cover after maize harvest is often not realistic because of autumn soil conditions and problems of late sowing.
Under-sowing with grass, legumes and other species is becoming a practical option. Grass can also count as an 'ecological focus area' option in England.
Inspired by trials in Herefordshire and extensive Danish research, contractor Roy Price, Field options and the Wye and Usk Foundation (WUF) have collaborated to build a drill specifically for under-sowing cover crops in maize.
