Appin

Is a leafy grazing turnip bred for fast, vigorous establishment and quick maturity (60-90 days). Appin has a very high leaf yield compared to other turnips and is multi-crowned with excellent regrowth potential. The high leaf to bulb ratio provides a leafy crop with high digestibility, that is firmly anchored to the ground, thereby minimising wastage.

Redstart

Redstart is one of a family of new generation rape/kale hybrids (alongside Swift) that offer high yields,excellent palatability and superior regrowth ability.The forage rape genes in Redstart give it the ability to grow very fast while the kale genes deliver very good winter hardiness. Redstart has good resistance to bolting and is therefore suited to spring sowing, or can be sown later for autumn/winter grazing.

Redstart

Swift

Swift is a new, fast growing rape/kale hybrid that offers superior regrowth ability and good all year round performance.The forage rape genes in Swift give it the ability to grow very fast while the kale genes deliver very good winter hardiness. It is a combination that means Swift is a superb catch crop for countering late season grazing shortages.

  • Excellent autumn/winter feed.
  • Suitable for late sowing.
  • Late maturing (in 90-110 days with superior regrowth potential).
  • Good late season yield (10.5 tonnes DM/ha).
  • High energy (12.8MJ/kg DM).
  • Good crude protein source (15-24%).
