Jackpot Turnip S/O


Jackpot is a new erect-growing forage turnip with multiple crowns and a firmly anchored round bulb suitable for grazing and cover crops. The Jackpot bulb doesn’t protrude out of the soil as much as other types, allowing it to regrow and reduce hoof damage. In addition, Jackpot has excellent palatability and digestibility which increases intake and animal performance. Maturity is within 60-90 days of germination with optimum regrowth within 30 days for rotational grazing. Jackpot is also an excellent nitrogen scavenger making it ideal for use in cover crops. With greater soil contact than the old purple tops or tankard shaped bulbs, Jackpot is the superior choice for soil health. Strike it rich with Jackpot!

  • Lower growing bulb
  • Ideal for grazing and cover crop
  • Excellent regrowth after grazing
  • High forage yield
  • Excellent palatability


Allow at least 35– 40 days before initial grazing of Jackpot and then expect to re-graze in 25-30 day intervals. Graze no lower than 4” if for multiple grazings. Overgrazing can damage the crown and should be avoided. To maximize regrowth potential, graze before the plant bolts. For best results, soil should pH should be at least 5.6 and ideally between 5.8 and 6.2. Apply at least between 35-55 lbs of phosphate per acre at planting and a light application of nitrogen after grazing. However, its recommend to avoid high nitration levels in order to reduce nitrate issues in the crop. For best results, retain a soil sample analysis and adjust soils accordingly.


Avoid sowing seeds too deep and too far apart. Ideal depth for most forage seeds is 1/8-1/4 inches. Planting seeds deeper than . inch may not allow them to establish. Sufficient seed-to-soil contact is extremely vital. Rolling or packing the soil after seeding can ensure this. If no-tilling, the right seeding depth is 1/4 inches deep. Jackpot can be broadcast seeded followed by harrowing, packing or livestock hoofing it in. Jackpot may be aerial seeded in late summer for fall/winter grazing.
