Leafy turnip May 8, 2016

Leafy turnip is very susceptible to clubroot. The crop itself suffers little hindrance but it can cause problems for successive crops that are sensitive to this. Rhizoctonia cannot multiply on leafy turnip. Leafy turnip can increase the beet cyst nematodes and can also experience some damage itself from this.

Vandinter Semo is a respected supplier of leafy turnip. In New Zealand, Vandinter Semo is actually the market leader with varieties such as Pasja, Pacer and Vivant. Due to the fact that the sheep industry there often opts for stable protein-rich crops.
