Now’s the Time for Retrieve

Posted: 8th August 2018

If you’re looking to patch up failed game or environmental crops, now’s the time to sow our Retrieve mixture for winter cover. Fast, reliable and economical, nothing beats this mixture of rape and mustard for a summer sowing after a failed spring crop. It’s now been updated by adding fodder radish and hybrid rape/kale, which match the growth and establishment habits of the rape and mustard and give increased winter hardiness.

Most game crops are spring sown, after frost risk has passed, to provide cover and feed from the late summer, but this quick growing Retrieve mixture can be drilled any time from April to September if there’s sufficient soil moisture.
