Brassica & Herbs
Forage brassicas offer a lifespan from 10 months to 18 months. Herbs such as plantain and chicory tend to give a longer term pasture of 2-3 years. Both offer very high quality feed in a short period of time. They tend to be utilized mainly as a monoculture, but can act as a great complimentary species in blends. Herbs like plantain and chicory are very good at recruiting from seed. This practice of letting the plants seed down, can extend the plant population and long term persistence of the paddock.
