Pasja II – the brassica to choose when fast, high quality spring/summer/autumn feed is needed for your stock. Pasja II combines early maturity with yield and the option for multiple grazings, providing quality fast feed you can rely on.
Pasja II is the brassica you need for your stock when fast, quality feed is needed.
Pasja leafy turnip has been a strong performing forage brassica in Australia for many years. Therefore, it was important to ensure that the traits that made the original Pasja such a favourite variety were kept and improved on when breeding and selecting for Pasja II. Key traits such as seedling vigour, speed to the first grazing, multiple grazing opportunities and overall yield have all been a focus in the breeding of Pasja II.
A significant trait improvement which Pasja II has over the original Pasja is its reduced bolting. Bolting is the presence of yellow flowers and the plant going from vegetative growth to reproductive growth. It reduces feed quality, feed intake and overall yield which all lead to reduced animal performance and productivity. The bolting of Pasja II is much less than with the original Pasja which makes Pasja II a much more flexible variety.
