Download a copy of the Dynamo turnip factsheet.
Dynamo is a globe shaped turnip providing a high yielding summer crop. It provides large volumes of low cost, quality feed when pasture quality and quantity declines. Dynamo produces a good level of bulb (around 45% of total yield). It is also an excellent break crop in pasture renewal programs. Dynamo is ready to graze 10–14 weeks after sowing. Suits dairy systems, sheep and cattle.
Good yield & feed quality
Dynamo helps maintain MS production over summer. It produces high DM yields, not significantly different from the top varieties and has excellent feed quality i.e. ME over 12.5 MJ/kg DM.
High bulb percentage
Summer turnips produce their yield in different ways. Dynamo produces a good level of bulb (around 45% of total yield), giving it an advantage in seasons when high levels of leaf diseases or pests are present
Low cost summer feed
Sowing a poor performing paddock into Dynamo makes sense as it can provide feed for around 13c/kg DM.
