Ultimately, Pallatons WUE in comparison to forage rape, in conjunction with its potential of *5+ grazings, gives farmers the ability to manage risk under dry conditions.
If you’re asking yourself the question; “Should I sow Pallaton or forage rape this Spring?”
DLF Seeds suggest “Sowing a forage rape if your goal this spring/summer is early feed, to achieve 1-3 grazings and, experience all the benefits a traditional forage rape offers, consider sowing a high quality forage rape such as Mainstar.
However, If you are an experienced brassica grower and your goal is to extend your feeding period, achieve up to 5+ grazings, and increase WUE, consider sowing a high performance crop such as Pallaton”. Concludes the DLF Seeds team.
