Forage Rape (Brassica napus)

 
Annual Species
Contains annual plants which usually die once they have flowered. Most annuals establish and set seed in the same year.
 
Fast Establishment
Quick to establish with rapid growth. Very competitive against weeds and fast to recover after cutting/grazing.
Ref: RAPE. Forage rape is a quick growing, protein-rich green forage, with similar yields to stubble turnips. It is sown from April to August to provide forage 12 weeks later. In most years it can be relied upon to produce forage until Christmas. It makes an excellent feed for lambs and tolerates poor soils so can be used as a pioneer crop in upland situations.

Slow Growing
Slower to establish but require much less maintenance and management.
 
Winter Hardy
Once properly established plants in this mix usually tolerate a typical British winter.
Ref: KALE. Kale is the highest yielding brassica and, being winter hardy, can relieve pressure on winter forage demands. It has a high protein content and is usually grazed between September and March, depending on sowing time. Kale is grown in England, Scotland and eastern parts of Wales. Seed is sown between April and June. Twenty weeks are required to grow a full crop. More details...
