Dwarf Essex Rape produces a excellent economical fall and winter food plot. Planted at 5-15 lbs. per acre. Rape is great for plowed ground forage for wildlife or live stock. Rape can also be over seeded in existing spring and summer food plots as they begin to decline in the early fall. After over seeding a close mowing and fertilizer application is all that is needed to give the rape plants what they need to thrive. Rape can be harvested or grazed every 30 days following a 75 day establishment period. Forage produced can contain 18-20% crude protein. Good cold tolerance make harvesting or grazing late into the fall and winter an option.
