Rape, Dwarf Essex

Rape, Dwarf Essex

Rapeseed is an upright, cool-season or winter annual broadleaf. It has a deep brous root system. It is a very good scavenger of nitrogen and phosphorus. Some winter-type cultivars are capable to survive in low temperatures such as 10°F. When mixing rapeseed in blends, reduce the seeding rate appropriately based on the desired mixture. If not, rapeseed can outperform other species and become very competitive.
