Greening mixtures for EFA
One of the three components of the new 'Greening' measure under the CAP, requires farmers with more than 15 hectares of 'Arable' land to maintain 5% of that land as an Ecological Focus Area (EFA).
To meet this obligation, farmers and landowners can choose from five options; one being to establish a seeds mixture designed to protect the soil and use available nutrients between harvest and sowing.
Below you will find some mixtures for sowing after cereals. Mixtures offer improved weed control and reduce the risk of a single species failing to establish.
