Winter rapeseed GREENLAND


Winter rapeseed


The leafy one

GREENLAND is a high yielding winter rapeseed of the group of varieties which contain erucic acid and glucosinolate. It was tested and approved for summer and winter catch crop cultivation and convinced as a summer catch crop by high yield, rapid soil cover and very low production of flowers. The utilisation can be done by dairy cows, beef bulls and sheep in grazing or as fresh food – the daily ration shouldn’t be too high. Sown as green manure, the winter rapeseed can extract large amounts of nitrogen from the soil and, in the course of mineralization, feed the following crop with nitrogen next year. As winter catch crop GREENLAND starts in spring with a quick start and because of the late flowering time a longer feeding period can take place.
