Forage Crop Selection

Forage Crops need to be chosen according to their suitability for the intended use, the timing of sowing and grazing, and the length of time available for the crop to be in the field.  Use the table below to help with this choice.  The period in which the grazing is required is along the top of the table.  Hovering over each crop type will show details in the grey box at the bottom.
