Farmfacts: Farmfact Kale - growing
a high yielding crop (1-74)

Last updated: October 2010


Kale is normally used as a winter feed crop. It has a deep root system with good drought tolerance. It also has good tolerance to most insect pests and can be used as a second brassica crop, especially after swedes, because of its tolerance to club root and dry rot.

Kale is usually sown in November and December to produce large amounts of high quality feed which is carried over for winter grazing.
