In the fields of our farm, we mainly grow grain, corn, rapeseed, forage, and soya. We process a large part of our crops in the feed production. A part of the crop production is sold for further processing in the food industry.
We use so-called zero tillage soil processing. It means we do not plough the soil, but we process it throughout the profile. This has a positive effect on its structure and, above all, prevents the soil compaction of the subsoil. Soil operations can be divided into several steps: Stubble ploughing, mellowing of soils and underspadding.
It is usually performed with a disk cultivator. The aim is to prevent the evaporation of water and to incorporate part of the post-harvest residue into the soil.More
We use blade weeders. When mellowing, we mix organic matter (post-harvest remnants) into the whole soil profile, disturb the compact parts of the field and prepare for sowing. The soil mellowing is performed to a depth of 15-28 cm, depending on the future crops.More
Particularly compact parts of the soil, especially the headlands, are processed by a sub-cutter up to a depth of 45 cm. This disturbs the rigid plow pan. This restores the soil's ability to absorb water. More
Fertilization is understood as a complex soil and plant nutrition. It is applied with regard to soil condition, soil response and plant needs. We perform regular soil analyses to monitor the soil condition.
Some nutrients, especially phosphorus, need to have the plant right in the early stages of germination. That's why we use a pre-planting fertilisation technology to the maximum.More about fertilization during sowing
Soil quality fundamentally affects the content of organic matter. It affects soil structure, its chemical properties, and feeds soil organisms.More about organic matter
Soil quality fundamentally affects the content of organic matter. It affects soil structure, its chemical properties, and feeds soil organisms. Therefore all post-harvest remains are left in the field. The only exception is straw for cattle. If the organic matter is used for the production of bulk feed, we add organic matter by growing intercrops.
To maintain yields and soil use, it is necessary to supply basic nutrients to the soil in the form of mineral fertilizers. These are chosen in order to minimize the soil reaction.More about mineral fertilizers
The purpose of liming is to maintain optimal pH in the soil. The need for liming depends on the parent rock, but also on fertilization and the choice of mineral fertilizer.More about liming
To maintain yields and soil use, it is necessary to supply basic nutrients to the soil in the form of mineral fertilizers. These are chosen in order to minimize the soil reaction, ie. in particular, to minimize acidification of the soil. Their use is controlled according to the needs of each crop according to the stage of its growth so that the nutrients (nitrates) do not leak into the ground.
The purpose of liming is to maintain optimal pH in the soil. The need for liming depends on the parent rock, but also on fertilization and the choice of mineral fertilizer. Its effect is greatly influenced by the organic matter content of the soil and its sorption abilities. Limestone is an important element of a complex mosaic of chemical soil composition.
In order to achieve the optimum yield, but also the health of the harvested crop, it is necessary to protect the plants. They are protected against harmful insects, persistent weeds and also against fungal diseases producing dangerous mycotoxins.
When using pesticides, we always consider whether the treatment is necessary, what products to use to eliminate as much as possible risks to bees and the environment at all.More about harmless attitude
In plant protection, we have moved from preventive to targeted conservation.More about the necessary quantity
Every sprinkler ride does not necessarily mean the use of plant protection products. The sprinklers are also used to apply foliar feeding.More about foliage feeding
Every sprinkler ride does not necessarily mean the use of plant protection products. The sprinklers are also used to apply foliar feeding. We do not only use nitrogen fertilizers for foliar feeding but we supplement plants with a deficient microelements such as boron, zinc, and others when speaking about foliage feeding.
Our yield per hectare of winter wheat is 25% higher than the average in the Czech Republic. The hectare yields of the second most widespread crop, the winter rape, are 20.6% higher than the long-term (five-year) average of the Czech Republic.
We strive for a balanced cropping process to prevent pest spreading and unilateral soil depletion.
