Siberian Kale

    Description

    Siberian Kale like many other brassicas are a great addition to mixes for deep taproots to access nutrients and water deep in the soil profile. This deep taproot allows for following crop roots or water to go deep in the soil profile. The wide leaf and good palatability of kale works great in grazing mixes for livestock. A good cold tolerant brassica can last deep into the fall for good fall and early winter grazing.
