Core aspects of Soil3

Most important results from the first 5 years

  • Yield potential: 23-55% yield increase
  • Sustainability: at minimum 4 years

With the Soil3 technique, yield gains were consistently achieved in the first four years (23% for cereals). For maize, under the dry conditions in Thyrow, even a yield increase of over 50% was observed in the first year using the Soil3 technique. The combination of mechanical and biological subsoil melioration also resulted in a yield increase of about 20%.

  • Expense costs: approx. 800 €/ha, plus costs for organic material (e.g. compost, greenwaste, straw)
  • Social acceptance: high with regard to the importance of the subsoil, variable with regard to new techniques
