Hunter Forage Turnip

Hybrid of Turnip & Rape

Bred for fast establishment, with utilization possible in 45-55 days. Similar to a non-bulb producing turnip, only much leafier with vigorous regrowth and fast recovery from grazing. Has the ability to yield well into the fourth regrowth cycle with adequate moisture. Does well in heavier soils, but prefers more moisture than forage rape.
