SF Greenland

The new benchmark for forage rape

SF Greenland is a high yielding forage rape that can be used by dairy, beef and sheep producers to produce high quality feed in any season where moisture during growing season will allow. Due to its late flowering, SF Greenland is well suited to sowing during late summer until spring.
It is consistently producing high yields when sown for either winter or summer feed.
SF Greenland is fast becoming the rape of choice for producers looking to improve their profitability from growing
forage rape.

Agronomic features:
  • Fast to first grazing
    Can provide earlier feed for livestock

  • Higher yielding
    Can deliver more liveweight gain or milk per hectare

  • Improved regrowth potential
    Provides more feed from later grazings

  • Reduced bolting
    Provides better quality longer

* Relative yields based on four replicated Australian trials; Gundagai, Macarthur, Warrnambool and Caramut 2006–2009.
* Meat value estimated using 70% utilisation of feed and $2.50/kg liveweight gain, and milk value estimated using 80% utilisation of feed and 40c/litre milk.
