Growing Information

Forage Crops

CULTURE: Mangels are a quick-growing forage crop for fall harvest that can be fed to chickens, cattle,swine, and sheep. They prefer well-drained loamy soils in full sun, with a constant supply of moisture. Clay soils will not produce the best roots. Will grow in a wide range of soil pH (4.2-8.2).
Sow 15-25 seeds/ft., 8-10 lb./acre with a final target spacing of 4-8" apart for the largest roots.
Harvest as soon as roots are large enough (4-5"), but they may be left in the ground until just before a hard freeze. Smaller roots may be fed to livestock immediately; larger roots should be topped, and stored in a cooler with high humidity. Yield per acre ranges from 15 to 30 tons. Roots should be chopped into manageable pieces (2-4") for sheep and cows.
