Successful Kale crop at Poukawa

This crop was sown in September by direct drill. It struggled a little early on due to a drish spring but good rains in December and early January got it going. At a guess it's about a 4.5- 5.0 tonne dry matter crop at this stage with a some growing still to do. We will collect dry matter tonnage later. The slope is a bit deceptive in the photo and on average it would be above 15 degrees with some at 20 degrees. The site for establishing and recording catch crops is in the foreground.
