Sovereign is a high yielding, medium-tall forage kale with good club root tolerance.
In agronomic tests conducted by the SAC in Aberdeen, Sovereign was shown to have good dry matter yields and excellent leaf-to-stem ratio and compared statistically very favourably on all counts with Caledonian kale.
Successfully tested for winter hardiness and keeping ability, it has the potential to maintain good quality production over a longer usage period.
Sow at 1.5-2kg/acre or broadcast 2-3kg/acre.
Available in 1kg pack.
Flea Beetle treated seed must be drilled and not broadcast. Flea beetle seed treatment greatly reduces the effect of flea beetle damage in the early stages of establishment, however regular monitoring of the crop is still required as further action may be needed in the event of heavy attack.
