Game Cover Mixtures

Establishment of a successful game cover crop requires the same level of attention to detail that a conventional agricultural crop requires.

The siting of areas for game cover undoubtedly dictates which species of game cover crop will prove to be successful. Brassicas (kale, rape, fodder radish and mustard) all dislike wet and compacted ground. Kale is regarded as the mainstay of many good gamecrops however it can be challenging to grow successfully as like all Brassicas it needs fertile free draining soil and protection from grazing pests particularly in its early stage of growth.
