Green Globe turnips are ideal for late autumn/winter feed in more challenging environments. Planted in summer they can be grazed 90-120 days after sowing; they do not require a specific ripening period. There are a number of situations where they can be incorporated whether it is as part of a development plan (i.e. breaking in country), lower fertility soils or more challenging topography.


Minimum 500mm rainfall per annum unless irrigated
