Crops with similar N status and canopy cover can be grouped together.
Table 1: Grouping Options for fodder crops
|Kale||Winter fodder||If similar yields and sowing times are provided kale, swedes and turnips can be grouped.|
|Turnip bulbs||Winter fodder|
|Rape||Summer fodder||If similar yields and sowing times are provided, leafy turnips and rape can be grouped.|
|Turnip leafy||Summer fodder|
|Fodder beet||Don’t group||It is best to leave fodder beet on its own due to it having a lower N content than the brassica crops.|
