Stubble Turnip

Stubble turnips are a fast-growing and high-protein catch crop, popular with livestock farmers. Stubble turnips can be sown after first cut silage for summer grazing or after winter cereals for autumn utilisation. Also useful as a break crop between grass reseeds. When planting a large acreage it is advisable to stagger sowing dates, increasing the seed rate in dry conditions.

Stubble turnips should be sown approximately 12-14 weeks before they are to be utilised. If using for dairy cow grazing it is important to take into consideration the distance between the field and the milking parlour. Strip grazing is advisable if possible to limit wastage. Stubble turnips are an incredibly economical source of high-quality forage, and can yield up to 4-5t of DM per ha. Sowing rates can be adjusted to either increase top growth or bulb growth. Lower sowing rates encourage greater bulb growth, and higher sowing rates encourage greater top growth.
