Turnip Overview

Turnips are an extremely valuable crop, offering flexibility, good disease resistance compared to forage rapes and high quality feed over summer and autumn when you need feed the most. Turnips come in two varieties; tankard type and leafty turnip.

Tankard type have exceptionally high yield potential from a single graze, good leaf to bulb ratio, and range from early maturing turnips ideal for summer feed to late maturing turnips which provide autumn, early winter feed. Later maturing turnips can be ultilised in areas where growing feed in winter months is difficult.

Leafy turnips are generally a multi-graze option with a very low ripening period. Leafy turnips offer quick spring, summer and autumn feed with the potential of providing up to 3-4 grazings. They are more prone to stress during summer than forage rapes as they have a less prominent tap root.
