Farmfacts: Barkant turnips -
feeding the crop (1-67)

Last updated: September 2006

Summary: Barkant turnips are a palatable and energy rich feed which can help fill a feed shortage over the summer. They are also the highest yielding turnip available on the market at present.

A well-grown crop has the potential to increase MS/ha by 20%, as well as prepare the paddock for introduction of new clover and novel endophyte ryegrass cultivars.
