Rape Crop

Rape Plant



Rape’s rapid forage growth produces quality pasture equivalent to alfalfa, with a crude protein value around 16-17%. Boasted for its nutrient scavenging abilities, rape can accumulate potentially large amounts of residual N up to 100kg N/Ha.

Also, root exudates secreted by rape are known to aid in turning insoluble P into a more available form. 

Adding rape in between wheat crops has been shown to greatly reduce take-all in wheat. Rape has an excellent, deep penetrating tap-root with a dense fibourous root mass surrounding the tuber.
