Turnip is a root crop that is a productive source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, foliate and Calcium. The sowing time of the turnip crop in all plain areas of Pakistan has commenced. Farmers can grow different varieties such as golden ball, purple top, local red & white globe etc. 2-3kg of seed/acre is enough to grow and must process the seed before sowing with Thiram @3mg/kg. It gives best results in sandy, loamy soil with a PH level of 5.5-6.8. Heavy clay soil destroys the quality of fruit.
