Barkant is a truly improved forage turnip variety. Bred for leaf production, it out yields most other turnip varieties available. A very vigorous diploid turnip variety with a purple tankard root, Barkant turnips have a high bulb yield, and good top growth. A high sugar content provides winter-hardiness and increased palatability. With good tolerance to bolting and under a correct grazing management system, Barkant turnips can provide multiple harvests.
