Another note, in my experience, it seems deer tend to key in on the dwarf essex rape before other brassicas. I believe it might be due to the snoothe texture of the leaves. It has no "fuzz" on the underside like purple top turnips do or other rapes. It may even be more tender or something. Whatever it is, I've seen them key in on it even within a mixed plot of brassicas.
Should be room now Brad.I cleaned the pm's out.
Thanks for the info.To date I've always used the dwarf essex with mostly poor results so this year I'll make the switch.
I'm also going to give some type of rye,pea,and maybe oat plot.
I like the fact that they lay off the rape in your mix,until later anyway.The dwarf they hit as soon as it pops up.However our dwarf never seemed to grow well.One mistake we made was not enough urea and we didn't disc it in.
