Variety information



For use as fodder, green manure and water protection
Name addition
Winter turnip rape
  • Cheap, farmy-own feed to relieve the main fodder production and bridging feed gaps - very suitable for grazing 
  • High sugar content with low nitrate content provides good fodder quality and promotes digestibility
  • JUPITER has a very fast vegetative development and is suitable for late sowing
  • Nitrogen is absorbed quickly, biologically bound during winter and so conserved for the following crop
  • Dense leaves - suppress weeds and protect against wind and water erosion
  • Intensive root system actively promotes soil life and improves the soil structure
  • Good winter hardiness prevents nutrient from leaching - effective water protection measures
