Sustainable agriculture


We aim to ensure sustainable and cost-effective production, with the long-term goal of producing the highest possible quantity of consistent, high-quality goods with the lowest possible carbon footprint and environmental impact. This is achieved by reducing CO2 emissions using mainly no-till farming, reduced use of chemicals and fertilisers, state-of-theart technology and IT systems.

Improving soil humus content

We maintain and improve soil humus content to enhance the soil’s ability to store water during dry seasons and nutrition during heavy rainfall. Higher soil humus content also improves earthworm habitat and therefore provides a more favourable environment for plant root growth.

Seeding without cultivation

We use no-tillage sowing and cover crops as far as possible to reduce CO2 emissions and thus ensure the conservation of soil humus content. No-tillage seeding also reduces disturbance to the living conditions for earthworms and therefore increases earthworm numbers. In addition, this minimises fuel consumption and other costs per tonne of grain produced.

Weather resistant crops

We focus on growing crops with a long growing season and therefore larger root systems, as this minimises the risks associated with extreme weather conditions, including periods of drought.
