Hardy Root Mixture

 
Annual Species
Contains annual plants which usually die once they have flowered. Most annuals establish and set seed in the same year.
 
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: MIXHR. Combining different brassicas together in a mixture is often beneficial as the crop is more reliable and higher yielding. This longer term mixture is sown between April and the end of June. It needs 20 weeks or more to produce its full yield. This crop will provide winter hardy keep until February or March. Three acres feeds 150 sheep (complete diet) or 75 cows (quarter of diet) for a month. Mixture Contents...

Samson Stubble Turnip (Brassica rapa)

 
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: STUBTUR. Turnips are grown in most areas of the UK as a highly digestible catch crop, producing around 4.5t DM per hectare within 10-12 weeks from sowing. Early sowing from late April produces heavy crops for dairy grazing or for fattening lambs weaned off grass from July onwards. Sowing also takes place throughout the summer until late August for feed through until January. More details...

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.

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...
