Impact Forage Collards are highly nutritious and digestible for livestock and are slow to bolt and flower when spring planted, making them a good choice for late spring and early summer grazing. They have also exhibited excellent ability to regrow after grazing - even under drought conditions.
Impact Forage Collards are small seeded and are priced less than most other premium hybrid brassicas, giving them excellent value as a flown on cover crop or as a part of a diverse grazing mix. Impact Forage Collards have a deep growing taproot and will not form a tuber or a bulb, but rather they put their growth and energy into producing very large and nutritious leaves. Impact Forage Collards have demonstrated the ability to stay green into late December (in Nebraska), even after temperatures had dropped below 0° F for at least one night.
