RIVAL TURNIP

Rival is ideally used as part of a pasture renovation programme on dairy farms that have a period of dry weather, or a loss of pasture quality, through January and February. Growing a Rival crop provides a standing volume of high energy and protein feed, which helps maintain milk production under periods of environmental stress. Rival is a high-performing cultivar, with a higher leaf proportion than some other turnip varieties, ensuring high quality at grazing.
