      Leafy Turnip

      Leafy turnip is a member of the brassica family with high early vigour. Its deep rooting will help condition the soil and relocate nutrients from the sub-soil to the top.

      Leafy turnip will also help reduce nitrogen leaching.

      • Sowing rate: 5 kg/ha
      • Frost tolerance: Good
      • Biomass: Yields of 3-5 t DM, suitable as a forage crop
      • Pests & diseases: Generally not a problem, but clubroot could become an issue if brassicas are used as a cover crop over a period of years

      GLAS Scheme:

      • The following table presents the full list of prescribed catch crops permitted within the GLAS scheme.
      • For GLAS, a mixture of at least two crops from the prescribed list must be sowing.
      • Catch crops must remain in place until after 1 December.
