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

Maincrop Turnips

Maincrop Turnips

Maincrop turnips produce high fresh yields of very palatable and easy to digest fodder.

They are ideal for finishing lambs and also provide valuable fodder for beef and dairy cattle in the autumn and winter.

Drilling date will need to be considered to get the full potential of this crop as they have a growing period of 13-15 weeks in optimum conditions.

Their growth habit is slightly slower compared to stubble turnips but will be more winter hardy. Both cattle and sheep should be introduced gradually to the crop and have access to a grass run-back.

Silage, hay or straw should also be made available whilst grazing the crop. They should be grazed in situ and preferably strip grazed to reduce waste.

Massif is a yellow fleshed turnip which is winter hardy. It can be sown from May to August and will produce huge yields from a short growing period. It makes a good alternative to swedes.

Green Globe turnips produce a white fleshed turnip which is a slightly softer turnip compared to Massif. Its roots are well anchored into the ground and will produce high fresh yields.
