Let's find out more about how Agrii helps with more about sustainable farming and the production of safe, affordable and healthy food

Kale

Kale

Kale produces high yields and is high in protein, which can help
bolster forage demands in the winter.

It’s traditionally strip grazed behind an electric fence to help reduce waste, making it an economical crop to grow. A grass run-back is recommended and silage or hay should also be made available
whilst grazing the crop. It can also be harvested and fed by zero grazing as well.

Depending on sowing date, it is generally utilised from late August through to March which makes it suitable for outwintering livestock. Kale is higher yielding and more winter hardy than rape/kale hybrids however it will take longer to produce a crop.

CALEDONIAN
Caledonian is a high yielding kale which has tall, thick stems making it suitable for dairy and beef cattle. It’s a UK proven variety which has good digestibility and is also one of the most clubroot tolerant varieties. (There are different strains of clubroot so a five year rotation is recommended).

BOMBARDIER
Bombardier is a variety that has been bred to enhance its feed quality and palatability. It is suitable for dairy, beef or lamb production. It will produce high dry matter yields and is suitable for autumn and winter utilisation. It is also a club root tolerant variety. (There are different strains of clubroot so a five year rotation is recommended).

KEEPER
Keeper is a leafy, medium/short variety which has good resistance to lodging. It has a high dry matter content which produces quality winter keep, making it ideal for finishing lambs.
