Winter rapeseed AKELA


Winter rapeseed


The top-selling one

AKELA is a feed rapeseed with a high leaf-to-plant ratio, soft, pithy stems, a good flavour and is easily digested. It provides high yields of excellent, protein-rich
high-quality feed that can be used as fresh feed, late grazing or silage. It tolerates late sowing (until around the 20th of September), is completely frosthardy and is guaranteed not to flower in the year of sowing. Its dense root system makes AKELA an ideal precursor crop when grown as green manure. It covers the ground rapidly after sowing, and so is an effective weed suppressant.
