My mangel crop was drilled the 17th May, and came up most favourably.
The mangel wurzel produces a larger crop than the Swedish turnip.
Three-fourths of the fields were meadow or pasture, or in mangel or turnips.
Theoretically an excessive development of the leaves of the mangel may be inimical to the growth of the root.
Of the different varieties of the mangel the long yellow appears to be the most nutritious, and the long red the least so.
The leaves of the Mangel Wurzel are of great value, especially in dry summers.
It is smaller than the mangel wurzel, and more compact, and appears in its texture to be more like the Swedish turnip.
Mangel wurzel, the stock beet, sometimes grows to forty and fifty pounds' weight, if given room and proper cultivation.
We had him from the work'us when he was seven, to chop mangel wurzel, and here he's been ever since, nigh twelve year.
But mix the potatoes with juice of mangel wurzel, and they make very good food for hogs of all ages.
