Florida Broadleaf

Crop TypeCool Season Broadleaf
Seeds / Lb100,000
Minimum Germination Temperature40F

This broadleaf produces a great taproot that has fibrous roots that come off it which helps it naturally break up compaction. This brassica produces the most biomass out of any of the brassicas which makes for ideal grazing scenarios. Also, forage produced by mustard plants have been shown to act as dewormer’s in livestock. Some concern has been made about having a tough time terminating this species, but it’s been shown to be easily controlled with the appropriate herbicide. It does need to be noted that if planted too early, this will bolt and set seed.
