Appin Forage Turnips
Appin Forage Turnips are bred for fast, vigerous establishment and quick maturity.
Appins have multiple growth points out of the base of the plant and provide a large amount of forage for deer and livestock.
Appins will also produce a small bulb that is very palatable and nutritious!
Appin has a significantly higher proportion of leaf yield compared to other turnips and is multi-corwned for improved regrowth potential.
Plant at 1/4″ depth in a well prepared seed bed in the spring or early fall.
Seed can be broadcast or no-tilled into suppressed sod but planting rate should be increased by 20-30%.
Brassicas like moist soils with good soil drainage and grow best on soils with a pH between 5.3 and 6.8 with medium levels of phosphorus and potassium. Apply 50-75 pounds of nitrogen at planting. If tillage is conducted let the first flush of weeds germinate then till the field one more time to control weeds. After final tillage pass, firm soil with a cultipacker then either drill or broadcast seed.
