This is the first perennial food plot blend that can withstand poor soil conditions ranging from 5.4 to 7.5 pH and only 15" of annual rainfall. This heat-resistant, cold-tolerant mix of perennials lasts from three to five years and produces a high-quality, protein-rich (up to 36%) food source in areas that normally only allow annual mixes. And best of all, the deer love it. Transform those less-than-choice plot areas into lush, green fields to keep the deer on your land year-round and healthier than ever before. 5.6-lb. bag plants 1/4 acre. Contains attractive forages including evergreen forb and chicory. Grows well in most soils including well-drained, sandy and light. Should be planted no deeper than 1/4" during the spring or fall in areas that receive 4-6 hours of sunlight per day.
