      Vollenda

      Stubble turnip is another flexible forage crop offering a cost-effective feeding solution in summer, autumn or winter for sheep or cattle.

      As well as providing a main crop, Vollenda can be used as a catch crop during summer grazing shortfalls.

      Main uses

      • Catch crops for overcoming summer grazing shortfalls
      • Versatile autumn/winter grazing that reduces concentrate feeding period
      • Valuable source of clean (worm-free) grazing for lambs

      Vollenda seed benefits

      • Easy to establish (undersown or scratched into stubbles)
      • Early vigour variety suitable for May sowing (July feeding)
      • Winter hardy variety ideal for later drilling (Nov – Jan feeding)
      • Good resistance to bolting
