Polish Rapeseed (B. Rapa)

  • Succulent plant related to cabbage
  • Persists well after the first frost but rarely overwinters in Upper Midwest
  • Earlier maturity and greater shatter resistance
  • Well adapted to short-season growing areas

Best Use: Forage for hogs, sheep, and young stock. Can be grazed multiple times.

Management: Ready to pasture in 6 to 8 weeks. Keep it cut or grazed down so it doesn’t get tall and woody. Supplement perennial cool season pastures in August and September or interseed warm season grasses to improve their feed quality. Can blister white pigs from grazing.

Planting Date: Early spring until August

Seeding: 3 lbs/acre or 1-3 lbs in a mix ¼” deep
