Fodder kale

Brassica oleracea


Marrow-stem kale (fodder kale) is a member of the Brassica family that is sown between mid- and late July. As an alternative, sowing can take place as early as March or April, in which case it may be considered to be a main crop. Fodder kale provides high dry matter yields for use as fodder. In addition, it stands out due to its excellent winter-hardiness, high crude protein yields and good overall yields.
