Brassicas

Hunter

A cross between a turnip and a rape Hunter is a quick-growing, leafy turnip with minimal bulb development. It is best suited to multiple grazings for summer and early-autumn feed requirements. A fast maturing forage brassica with the first grazing possible at 6-8 weeks. Hunter is an excellent quality forage capable of providing extremely high liveweight gain on animals. Bred for tolerance to turnip mosaic virus and cauliflower mosaic virus. This, combined with selecting for vigorous regrowth, has provided a variety with fast recovery from grazing and excellent ability to yield in the second, third and sometimes fourth regrowth cycle. Plants usually show good resistance to most clubroot races, but they are susceptible to drought and aphids, and are best suited to heavier soil conditions with periodic summer moisture or irrigation. Sowing rate: 4-5 kg/ha
