What was that relatively winter Hardy stubble turnip you were on about :unsure:
No Rebound Hybrid Kale
Voltage is Straight 2 year Kale , very popular leafy and winter Hardy
Frisia is the best stubble turnip I've grown but the gestures will be along to prove me wrong [emoji1787]
Ballansa or Crimson or relatively cheap if you just stick a little bit in

Hobson Kale is the best for winter hardiness with excellent resistance to both Mildew and Alternaria.

Higher relative DM yield % & relative fresh yield % compared to Redstart.

How does this voltage kale work then ? Will it keep coming back full whack after a grazing through all seasons ? Never heard of two year kale before

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.
