Growing Jerusalem Artichokes, also Sunchoke

View the Jerusalem Artichokes page

15 Jun 12 Diana (Australia - temperate climate)
I'm thinking of growing this as a fodder crop for my wiltshire sheep and ducks. Does anyone have experience with jerusalem artichokes as a fodder plant? I already have a nice health first years patch that has grown and has died down for the winter - I'm wanting to plant some of these tubers out in one of my paddocks (randomly spaced to eventually out grow some pesky weeds we have growing).
