Bonar Forage Rape is a late maturing rape with short stems and large paddle leaves. 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 making for great late fall to mid winter hunting. Bonar forage is a high yielding rape variety that may provide quality winter food in your fall food plots. Bonar performs best when sown in moist soil where soil fertility is good. Prefers a pH between 5.5 and 7.

Seed germinated well and plants look terrific. To early to rate the attraction as it takes approximately 3-4 months to reach ripen.
