Fodder Beet Crops
Growing fodder beet crops?
Simple steps to produce a highly effective crop.
So you are determined to give your fodder beet crop (kale, rape swedes, leaf or bulb turnips and fodder beet) every chance of being a winner. Most likely to stand between you and success (apart from inadequate soil fertility and the weather) are weeds and pests.
Both weeds and pests can have an impact on yield from as early as sowing. Timing of corrective measures is as important as choosing the right solution.
This guide is designed to provide good solutions to some of the issues facing farmers who wish to maximise the profitability from their feed crops. Some of these solutions begin long before the crop is sown, so planning is critical to achieving success.
