Invitation Swede is a very good performer with a number of advantages, providing great winter feed for cattle, sheep, and deer. A late maturer, it flowers late into spring, remaining in a vegetative state longer, resulting in fewer animal health problems such as bloat when transiting onto the Brassica crop. Maturing later, Invitation also has a good tolerance to dry rot. Additionally, the cultivar has a high leaf yield, lifting the protein levels and maintaining both feed quality and quantity into winter. The better protein content also helps with transitioning stock, especially more susceptible younger stock. The bulbs are distinctive with yellow flesh. Swedes, like other root crops, are beneficial for soil health, helping to break up compaction and improving soil organic matter levels.
