Forager turnip is an improved forage turnip, designed for increased forage quality and production. As with rape and other brassicas, forage turnips are often used in the wildlife industry for winter food plots. However, Forager can be a very useful cool-season grazing option. The foliage is very palatable and high in protein, and the tuber, which livestock also consume, can also be very nutritious. Forager if often utilized in a grass mix (oats, ryegrass, rye, triticale, wheat) at a rate of 1-2 lbs/acre.
