Top Crop Brassica, Herbs & Millet forage blend contains a blend of Forage Millet, Chico Chicory, Pillar Forage Rape and Titan Forage Rape can produce good summer feed with excellent regrowth under hot conditions given moisture availability. Shirohie millet adds fibre to the diet reducing potential animal health issues associated with grazing forage brassicas and the addition of Chico Chicory in this blend adds high yielding, very high quality and leafy herbs which show fast establishment, rapid re-growth, strong insect resistance and good drought tolerance. This blend combines herbs with a brassica crop, allowing the brassica to act as a cover crop as the other species establish.
