Turnip rape

Brassica rapa L. silvestris


Turnip rape can tolerate late seeding and frost quite well, and can remove large volumes of nitrogen from the soil. It is less demanding than rapeseed, making it suitable for sites with less advantageous climates. Turnip rape is primarily cultivated as a winter cover crop that is used as green manure or fodder crop.
