Turnips

Turnips/Rutabagas are easily grown from seed in Saskatchewan. Flea beetles (early season) and root maggots may provide significant problems, but high populations of root maggots result in excessive levels of root damage of both turnip and rutbaga in most locations and years in Saskatchewan.
