Primetime Forage Rape
Primetime Forage Rape is an early maturing forage rape bred for high annual yields and excellent regrowth. Its quick establishment means that farmers can start grazing the crop earlier than other options, giving greater flexibility during tight feed periods. Being a multi-stemmed variety, multiple grazing’s are achievable in a season. Primetime has a high leaf to stem ratio meaning feed quality is extremely high, enhancing its stock finishing capabilities.
The combination of quick establishment and excellent cool season growth means that yields of up to 12,000 kgDM/ha are achievable (moisture permitting). Primetime can either be sown in the spring for summer feed, or early autumn for late autumn/winter production. It also has improved disease resistance for greater longevity and quality.
