Rival summer turnip is a mid-maturing tankard-shaped bulb turnip bred for high leaf production and improved turnip mosaic virus tolerance. Rival summer turnip provides high volumes of high energy, high protein and low fibre forage at a time of year when fibre content of pastures are increasing, and energy and protein are decreasing. Maturity is 10-12 weeks.
Pasture seed sowing rate (sole): 1.5-3kg/ha
Minimum 600mm rainfall per annum unless irrigated
