Profile

GORILLA is a dark purple green, re-growing forage rape. The stature of GORILLA is slightly shorter than many current varieties but with good standing ability. The dry matter content of GORILLA is higher than average which leads to high total dry matter yields. GORILLA shows a moderately good resistance to powdery mildew and is quite resistant to club root. When sown early (for example in May) GORILLA can produce a first crop in August to cover a shortage of summer grass, then has good regrowth to achieve a second crop in November/December. Alternatively GORILLA can be strip grazed as required, with good regrowth potential.

  • good re-growing forage rape
