Organic farmers now grow the fast-growing catch crop of Dynamo stubble turnips with organically produced seeds now available from Limagrain UK.

 “The organic variety Dynamo can be drilled or broadcast sown into post-harvest stubble and a crop can be ready to use 12-14 weeks,” says Limagrain UK’s Martin Titley. It can be grazed in situ to provide a nutritious crop for fattening lambs, or for autumn keep for dairy or beef cattle.”

Dynamo is said to have good all round disease resistance and seed costs around £18-20/acre.
