Dolichos (Lab Lab)

High quality forage Suits wide range of soil types, tolerant of cool temperatures Drought tolerant once established More grazing tolerant than Cow pea Soil type: Sandy to heavy clay Sowing rate: 15-20kg/ha
  • 650mm+

Domain

Domain is a new generation, dry rot tolerant, yellow-fleshed swede. Domain is an early maturity traditional swede and is very similar in growth habit to Dominion in which it replaces. Sowing rate: 0.75-1 kg/ha alone 0.5 kg/ha in a mix

New York Turnip

White-fleshed, purple-skinned and oval-bulbed, New York is a late-maturity winter turnip. It is distinguished by having a full leaf with large bulb development, and can be sown as early-winter feed with annual or Italian ryegrass. New York has been tested and performed strongly as a late-holding summer turnip, but should never make up more than one third of a cow’s diet. Sowing rate: 1-2 kg/ha

Sovereign

Sovereign is a medium-tall, late-flowering kale best suited for mid-winter or early-spring feed. Demonstrating a high yield potential and good leaf to stem ratio, Sovereign kale proves an ideal choice for sheep and cattle farming. Trials have shown Sovereign to have greater utilisation and less wastage compared to other varieties. Maturity is 18-24 weeks. Sowing rate: 3-5 kg/ha

Winfred

A versatile, early maturing forage rape variety, Winfred is a cross between turnip and kale and a strong option for cheap feed. Demonstrating excellent regrowth potential, Winfred’s flexibility allows it to perform well through summer and carry later into the season as winter feed if required. Its ability to withstand long dry spells coupled with a strong frost tolerance makes Winfred superior to most other brassicas Sowing rate: 3-4 kg/ha
