Establishment of a game cover requires the same attention to detail as a conventional agricultural crop. If established properly it will provide excellent holding capacity, a potential feed source and the possibility of wider environmental benefits.
The siting of areas for game cover undoubtedly dictate which species 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 crops, but it can be challenging to grow as like all brassicas it requires well drained fertile soil and protection from grazing pests especially in its early stages of growth.
