Soil and Animal Health Herbs Pack
Adding diversity to your leys with the Soil and Animal Health Herbs pack can increase the overall performance of a sward.
This pack’s mixture of leguminous herbs helps you make the best use of the natural resources above and below ground. It will improve your soil health and structure by increasing the mixture of plants in your swards.
The increased plant activity will also reduce your nitrogen losses and increase your carbon capture, improving your overall environmental benefits across the farm.
