Forage rape (Brassica napus) is used as a forage crop or as a cover crop. It stands medium frost quite well. It can be drilled in early and late stubbles. If drilled early, the crop can produce heavy stems which are not very palatable and not preferred by the animals.
Our forage rape varieties Greenland, Mosa, Rebound, Ringo and Sparta are exclusively winter types.
