CHAMPION Combicrop® is a precise blend of Spring Wheat and a combining pea.
It will give a total crop yield equal to, and in many cases higher, than straight wheat and can be grown without the use of expensive fungicides or insecticides.
A pre-emergence herbicide can be used for weed control – but always confirm with your regular pesticide adviser.
On highly fertile soils no NPK will be needed – the peas will easily produce enough free nitrogen for the crop and leave a substantial residue for the following crop.
- Combine dry to produce a feed concentrate meal that is high in starch with 14% to 18% protein (50% to 60% more than straight wheat)
- Combined crimped to produce a high quality starch and protein concentrate for dairy cows, followers and fattening / finishing beef cattle
- Wholecrop fermented harvested at 25% to 45% dry matter to feed on its own or with grass silage as a forage for stock
- Wholecrop fermented/preserved harvested at 50% to 70% dry matter for feeding with other conserved forage
CHAMPION Combicrop® is also a soil conditioner and will leave the soil structure very much improved after harvest.
