Main Crop Turnips

Main Crop Turnips although slower growing than stubble turnips have a higher yield potential and greater winter hardiness. They can be sown later than swedes and are a useful component to be mixed with kale, rape, or stubble turnips to extend grazing days. They should be sown in May or June and either drilled or broadcast into a fine firm seedbed.
