Skyfall: the Bounce Back Brassica

Skyfall can be repeatedly grazed through summer and autumn producing up to 14t/ac of quality forage

Skyfall is a bounce back brassica, which means it can be grazed and regrazed over summer and autumn unlike other brassicas. When sown in spring it is capable of producing between 12 and 14t/acre.

Skyfall’s deep roots give excellent regrowth potential and the possibility of 3 grazings from one crop. This regrowth, combined with strong drought tolerance makes Skyfall the perfect buffer in dry periods allowing silage stocks be saved for winter-use when they are more valuable.

Skyfall is an ideal break-crop before an autumn grass reseed and can help reduce the build-up of weeds and pests. This is especially important if considering multi-species or red clover mixtures where spray options are limited.
