Coleor Kale is a high yielding, leafy, diploid Kale of short to medium height, very high leaf to stem ratio and very good winter hardiness. Of particular note is Coleor’s high dry matter digestibility and metabolisable energy content which means potentially higher livestock performance. Recommended for sheep, beef and dairy cattle production systems.
HIGH YIELDING LEAFY DIPLOID KALE
