Quinoa/Kale Mixture 70% ORGANIC

Ref: MIXQUIORG

This simple combination supplies the two key requirements of birds: cover and feed. The kale provides excellent winter cover and supports the quinoa plants. Quinoa is used as a grain crop in South America and, in the UK, it can provide 1-2 tonnes per acre of high protein feed from late autumn. To establish a good crop sow between April and May into a well worked seedbed which is free of weeds.

Brassica

Kale

Kale is the highest yielding brassica and being winter hardy, can relieve pressure on winter forage. It has a high protein content and is usually grazed between September and March, depending on sowing time. It can be grazed by most livestock including sheep and cattle.

Quinoa

Quinoa has been cultivated for centuries for its small grains. Recently we have seen an emerging market to grow the crop in the Uk. While this market may expand, most commonly the plant is used as a seed bearing species for game covers and wild bird food mixtures under environmental stewardship.
