Good tillage and emergence and autumn plant development facilitate good winter hardness. These are precondition for high and stabile yield. Optimal planting date is beginning of September and doesn't sow at to high plant density. Because of its early spring growth, necessary is higher amount of nitrogen at top dressing in early spring.
