Firefly kale is a high-yielding, intermediate-height kale with a high leaf-to-stem ratio. Excellent crop utilisation by stock due to single plant selection for soft stems during the plant breeding process. Firefly is the first kale cultivar available in the Cleancrop™ Brassica System bred to have an herbicide tolerance trait, which allows the application of Telar® herbicide at both pre- and post-emergence for excellent weed control.

The Cleancrop™ Brassica System is a crop and weed management solution all in one.
Only Cleancrop™ combines the power of broad-spectrum herbicide Telar® and plants bred to resist it. Telar® takes care of 23 hard-to-control weeds at the time of sowing, freeing up moisture and nutrients to give your crop the best chance of maximising performance and delivering superior returns on your seed investment. Telar® cannot be used with conventional brassicas.
