Forage pea - beneficial for soil health and animal welfare!
- Colourfully flowering pea variety with normal leaflets, used as forage pea
- Fast-growing, fast ground coverage and good weed suppression
- Long growth type, high yield of green material
- Excellent plant health, resistant to Fusarium
- Recommended for organic farming
The forage pea variety LISA is a colourfully flowering, fast-growing variety with normal leaflets. Its rapid ground coverage and weed suppression are typical characteristics. Because of its long growth type it produces a high quantity of plant mass. Due to its excellent plant health and its Fusarium-resistance, LISA is perfectly suited for organic farming.
Thanks to its rapid youth development and the resulting good weed suppression, it is an ideal forage pea and well-proven in cultivation for many years.
Lisa has a well-developed root system penetrating the soil. Due to its long growth type it produces a high quantity of plant mass. Therefore it can be cultivated as a main crop in order to produce green manure and green fodder, either in mixed or in pure form, but also as whole crop silage, or even to serve as a protection against erosion.
In intercropping Lisa can contribute to a sustainable land management because it is capable of improving the tilth and of fixing the atmospheric nitrogen.
Due to its extraordinary plant health it is perfectly suitable for organic farming.
