Grow now, graze later!

  • For summer slump or early winter feed
  • High energy (80% TDN, 0.8 Nel), 30% crude protein stored feed
  • Low seed costs, high return

    Barkant is an improved forage turnip that combines higher leaf production and a purple tankard root (50% of the bulb is above the soil surface). Barkant produces high yields with good top growth. Barkant is a diploid variety, with good resistance to bolting and very good disease resistance. The high sugar content provides winter hardiness and improved palatability. Production of up to 4-6 tons/acre of dry matter under good grazing management is common. Crop maturity occurs in 60-90 days. Excellent for stockpiling and strip grazing. Barkant turnips provide an excellent option for pasture renovation break crop.
