A forage brassica plant which is used extensively in deer food plots and for livestock grazing. Trophy rapeseed is a fast growing brassica that is heat, cold, and drought tolerant making it adapted to the USA. Rape becomes more attractive to deer after a frost because the sugar content will become more concentrated. Rape is a green leafy fast growing plant that produces large flat leafs that will grow between 12 to 20 inches long and 8 to 15 inches wide and may grow to a height of two to four feet. Forage produced can contain 18 - 20% crude protein. Good cold tolerance allows for harvesting or grazing late into the fall and winter.  

Rapeseed also can be used effectively as a winter cover crop. Its deep tap roots are excellent at breaking soil compaction. The deep roots also help to scavenge after nutrients that are deep within the soil profile. The large amount of bio-mass that rape produces makes it a great green manure. Rape is becoming more and more widely used in cover crops and crop rotations because it establishes quickly, suppresses weed growth, and helps reduce soil erosion. Trophy is a canola type rape which produces large volumes of biomass with equal or higher feed values than alfalfa.
