  • Hunter is a fast establishing crop, with the first grazing possible at 6-8 weeks (45 to 55 days)
  • Providing excellent quality forage, Hunter can increase liveweight gain on animals
  • Hunter was bred for tolerance to turnip mosaic virus, caulifower mosaic virus and most clubroot strains
  • Selected for vigorous regrowth and fast recovery form grazing, Hunter has the ability to yield in the second, third and sometimes fourth regrowth cycle.
  • Best suited to heavier soil conditions with periodic summer moisture or irrigation where multiple grazing can be achieved.
  • Can be planted alone or as part of a mix for a fast establishing cover crop to compete with weeds, cycle nutrients, and build organic matter. 

Hunter is a hybrid developed by crossing turips with related Asiatic leaf vegetables of the same species. The resulting quick growing, leafy turnip, with minimal bulb development, is best suited to multiple grazings for summer and early-fall feed requirements. This hybrid is excellent quality forage, providing high liveweight gains for finishing stock to target weight in summer/fall.   When given more moisture, Hunter recovers very quickly from multiple grazings for excellent subsequent yields. Hunter is an integral component of "cocktail covercrops" Hunter can be used for beef & dairy cattle, deer & other wildlife, and sheep.  Time until first grazing is 6-8 weeks.

Sowing: 

 

  • Plant in spring to the end of summer, with given moisture, 
  • Plant in fall, on the west coast
  • Plant at 4-6 pounds per acre.   
  • Can plant with 10 pound per acre Crusader Italian Ryegrass (2 pound per acre Hunter) for extended grazing, from summer through fall, with given moisture

 

Please note because this seed is packaged according to the metric system, full bags are 55 pounds (25 kg), so please order multiple bag orders in units of 55 pounds
