rapeseed

Rapeseed is versatile enough to be planted in the spring for a summer cover, or may be utilized in the fall for a winter cover crop. Rapeseed works great as a dual purpose crop, adapting to a wide range of soil types and conditions. Rape tends to be extremely drought tolerant and stands frost better than some of other brassicas. Because of its winter-hardiness, it’s common for growers to get multiple grazing cycles when feeding rape.

  • Strong biomass production makes it great for fall and winter grazing
  • Offers the most grazing cycles of brassica when planted in alte summer/early fall
  • Performs well in poor soil fertility conditions
  • Likely to overwinter in transition zone and south
