BioLogics DEER-RADISH can be planted by itself or added to BioLogic seed blends to further increase attraction. As an added benefit, the deep penetrating roots help bust through tough hard pans and help to rejuvenate soils. Through research BioLogic has determined that DEER-RADISH’s are among some of the most attractive food plots available. Whitetails love the highly nutritious forage and the long, sweet, nutrient packed roots making this plant 100% consumable. Radishes produce glycosinolate compounds, which can reduce weeds and nematodes and are an excellent choice for claiming new soil to your food plot program without having to use excessive glyphosate based products. BioLogic’s DEER-RADISH creates one of the most attractive food plots available.
When to Plant: DEER-RADISH is very hardy and will germinate in drier conditions than other common food plot crops; however, there must be some soil moisture available. Soil moisture is more critical than temperature. Plant early August in the North, and early September in the South.
How To Plant: DEER-RADISH is best planted by spreading the seed on a well-prepared seed bed at 8lbs per acre. If possible use a cultipacker to help cover the seed and ensure good seed to soil contact. Broadcasting the see on a well-prepared seedbed just prior to a rain also produces an excellent stand as the rain serves to bury the seed the appropriate depth (1/4 inch) and ensures adequate soil moisture for germination. Disking is not a recommended method of covering the seed, as it will bury the seed too deep to allow germination. DEER-RADISH can be used to top-dress existing clover stands, adding several tons of nutritious forage during the fall. A mechanical grain drill is also an excellent method of planting.
