FORAGE CROPS

FORAGE CROPS

Description

The forage crops are species with fast growing (max 1 year) and with the target of green forage, hay and silage production, for animal feeding. The forage crops, single species or mix, are composed by forage species that can consent the forage integration of the farm and normally are interpose crops, because they occupy the soil in the period between two principal crops. Depending from the growing season, we can divide the forage crops in four different sectors: spring forage crops, summer forage crops, autumn forage crops and winter forage crops.
