Stubble Turnips

60–90 days to grazing

The most widely grown of all the forage brassicas, yield potential is above 4 tonnes of dry matter/hectare or 3–4,000 lamb grazing days/hectare, but only if they are given appropriate soil nutrition and planted early enough to reach full maturity. Some varieties, like Vollenda have bolting and disease resistance which allows them to be sown in late spring for summer grazing.
