Brassicas

Appin Forage Turnip

Appin Forage Turnip is created for fast, vigorous establishment and maturity as quick as 60-100 days. It is firmly anchored in the ground for minimum wastage. Appin has a significantly higher proportion of leaf yield compared to other turnips, and is multi-crowned for improved re-growth potential. The high leaf-to-bulb ratio results in a very leafy crop with high digestibility. High yielding, high quality variety designed for grazing and excellent forage. Appin bulbs have 6 to 10 growing points on top of the bulb allowing for more leaves and better regrowth. Will germinate when soil temperatures reach 50 degree. Annual

Barkant Turnip

Barkant Turnip is a very vigorous diploid turnip variety with a purple tankard type root. This variety has a very good leaf and root yield with high sugar and dry matter content. Barkant Turnips grow from the turnip, thus the turnip will be quite large. They perform well in cool moist soil conditions and mature in 60-90 days for excellent summer grazing. Seed can be no-tilled into suppressed sod or seeded into a conventionally prepared seedbed. Do not plant turnips for more than 2 consecutive years due to disease buildup. Fertilization enhances the productivity of turnips. Annual

Bonar Forage Rape

Bonar Forage Rape is a late maturing rape with short stems and large paddle leaves. It produces very high quality forage yields with the crop ripening approximately 13-15 weeks after spring sowing. May be used as a stand alone crop and is a good addition in mixes of clover, turnips, and other brassicas. After a hard frost the leaves become very sweet and palatable. Bonar performs best when sown in moist soil where soil fertility is good. Prefers a pH between 5.5 and 7. Annual

Dwarf Essex Rape

Dwarf Essex Rape is a fast growing brassica that is heat, cold and drought tolerant. Dwarf Essex Rape is a green leafy fast growing plant that produces large flat leafs that will grow between 12 and 20 inches long, 8 to 15 inches wide and may grow to a height of two to four feet. Forage produced can contain 18-20% crude protein. Good cold tolerance allows for harvesting or grazing late into the fall and winter. Prefers a pH between 5.5 and 8.3. Annual

Forage Chicory

Forage Chicory is a high yielding, broad-leafed perennial herb that has excellent food value. It has been improved for greater disease resistance and is a very drought tolerant plant due to its long tap root which significantly increases survival under grazing. Oasis also breaks winter dormancy earlier and is well managed in a mix with clovers providing a longer growing season of high quality forage. A stand should last 3-5 years. Suited for moderately drained soils with medium-to-high fertility levels and a pH of 5.5 or greater. Perennial

Maris Kestrel Kale

Maris Kestrel Kale is a full maturity leafy kale variety with short low-fiber stems. It has good cold tolerance making it perfect for late season forage. The kale greens are never bitter, and after hard fall frost become very sweet making them highly desirable and a favorite forage. Kale prefers a pH of 5.5 to 7.0. Annual


Pasja Hybrid Forage

Pasja Hybrid Forage is an early maturing hybrid forage brassica and is a cross between a forage turnip and a forage rape. Created for high performance and rapid growth with a high leaf to bulb ratio. It has excellent drought tolerance, good re-growth ability and highly palatable. Pasja may be planted in the spring for summer forage as well as summer planting for fall forage. Best on soils with a pH between 5.3 and 6.8. Annual

Purple Top Turnip

This nutritious turnip has the characteristic of growing with the globe exposed. The plant and roots are nutritious and protein filled. Fast-growing and high yielding. Turnips are a cool-weather crop and well adapted for the northern climate. The most vigorous root growth takes place during periods of low temperatures and they will reach maturity in about 55 days. Soil temperatures should be at least 50 degree for germination. Annual

Sugar Beets

Sugar Beets are a warm season crop that grow slowly and produces very large sugary taproot. Sugar content is dependent on the amount of vegetative growth, but can be as high as 18%. Seed when ground temperatures reach 55 degrees or higher. Sugar Beet crops like good soil with a limited amount of nitrogen to allow adequate root growth. Sugar Beets are best produced on coarse textured sandy soils with high organic matter and do not grow well on highly acidic soils. Grows best in soils with a pH of 6.0 to 8.0, Sugar Beets can be planted in early spring or midsummer. Annual
