Dwarf Essex Rape Seed

Seeding Rate: Plant 8 to 10 lbs. per acre.

Dwarf Essex Rape is a forage brassica plant that has been used extensively in deer food plots and for livestock grazing. Rape is a fast-growing brassica that is heat, cold, and drought tolerant. Rape becomes more attractive to deer after a frost because the sugar content will become more concentrated. Dwarf Essex Rape is a green leafy fast-growing plant that produces large flat leaves that will grow between 12 to 20 inches long, 8 to 15 inches wide, and may grow to a height of two to four feet. Forage produced can contain 18-20% crude protein. Good cold tolerance allows for harvesting or grazing late into the fall and winter. Prefers a pH between 5.5 and 8.3.
