SFI SAM3 - Herbal Leys

Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) SAM3, Herbal Leys, requires a herbal ley with varied root structures to improve the soil. The seed mix should contain a minimum of 5 species of grass, 3 species of legume and 5 species of herb. SAM3 is a rotational action, and can therefore be carried out on the same area of land each year, or can be moved around the farm. Ryegrass and/or festulolium should not make up more than 70% of the seed mix.
