Sown in June or July as a new crop or into cereal stubbles, Carbon will provide an excellent cover by November.
Carbon is also used in the Gamecover mixture Spaniel.
“Spaniel is a mixture of Carbon, Interval rape kale hybrid, mustard and fodder radish,” says Limagrain marketing director Martin Titley. “It brings all the advantages of using a multispecies mix of varieties. It grows very quickly, and is more frost tolerant than mustard sown on its own. This makes it ideal to replace patchy crops that might not have established from a spring sowing.”
