Corinne Ethiopian Cabbage (Coated)
Acre Rate 3-4 pounds
Corinne originates from Africa and is a unique, multipurpose brassica cultivar. It was bred for use in biofumigation systems but has proven valuable in many cover crop scenarios. It germinates quickly and grows to maturity in 40 days, when spring planted in continental climates. On the west coast Corinne is summer and fall planted; it is relatively drought and heat tolerant. As the fastest growing brassica in the portfolio it is effective for erosion control and quick feed in summer and fall. Corinne generally flowers in 60 days, after producing an effective taproot and up to 5000 lb. DM/acre to top-growth.
- Corinne contains the appropriate glucosinilate compounds to make it an effective biofumigant cover crop.
- Summer planted Corinne will add a "snowfence" component to cocktail cover crops. Mature, lignified plants reduce soil erosion as they contribute to stable plant decomposition.
- Corinne will produce significant cool season quality and biomass in warm summer conditions.
- Compatible with Graza, Hunter and in a cover crop blend for biofumigation.
