This tool covers weed management, soil quality and fertility for oilseed rape, explains the benefits of undersowing and provides practical recommendations e.g. for species and mixtures.

Summary translation

Diese Arbeitshilfe befasst sich mit der Unkrautbekämpfung, der Bodenqualität und der Fruchtbarkeit von Raps, erläutert die Vorteile der Untersaat und gibt praktische Empfehlungen, z. B. für Arten und Mischungen.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn how undersowing can be an alternative to hoeing in organic oilseed rape.
What problem does the tool address?:Oilseed rape sown in summer only forms a dense canopy in the following spring. In autumn and winter, the stands can become infested with weeds, and in vulnerable areas, soil erosion can occur.
What solution does the tool offer?:Undersowing helps to increase soil cover in autumn and thus suppress the emergence and growth of weeds. In oilseed rape, frost-sensitive legumes are best suited for undersowing. They fix nitrogen and thus contribute to the large nitrogen requirement of oilseed rape plant through mineralisation. After dieback in winter they form a thin layer of mulch on the field.
