Dynamo is a globe shaped turnip providing a high yielding summer crop. It provides large volumes of low cost, quality feed when pasture quality and quantity declines. Dynamo produces a good level of bulb (around 45% of total yield). It is also an excellent break crop in pasture renewal programs. Dynamo is ready to graze 10-14 weeks after sowing. Suits dairy systems, sheep and cattle.
Good yield & feed quality:
Dynamo helps maintain MS production over summer. It produces high DM yields, not significantly different from the top varieties and has excellent feed quality i.e. ME over 12.5 MJ/kg DM.
High bulb percentage:
Summer turnips produce their yield in different ways. Dynamo produces a good level of bulb (around 45% of total yield), giving it an advantage in seasons when high levels of leaf diseases or pests are present.
Low cost summer feed:
Sowing a poor performing paddock into Dynamo makes sense as it can provide feed for around 13c/kg DM*.
