Winter forage rape is used as a green manure crop or a forage crop. It stands medium frost quite well. It can be drilled in early and late stubbles. Winter hardy forage rapes with very late flowering and longer growing seasons can be sown to produce feed with additional re-growth potential. When drilled early, the crop can produce heavy stems which are not very palatable and not preferred by the animals. Fodder rape can be split into two types: spring and winter, our varieties are exclusively winter types.


A very high yielding fodder rape with excellent leaf quality. It can be sued by dairy, beef and sheep farmers to produce high quality feed. One of latest flowering forage rapes. The variety has big, light green leaves, which cover the soil very quickly. Due to its consistent high yields it has become the forage rape of choice for producers looking to improve their profitability.


A 00 variety with favorable leaf/stem ratio, which makes it very digestible. Mosa is very late flowering with a good early plant development. The variety has good frost resistance and high biomass development.


This light green leaf coloured tall variety shows high biomass production and frost resistance. The variety was selected from a hybridization between stubble turnip and borecole. The variety is tolerant to some types of club root (Plasmodiophora brassicae).
