Primary Usage: BioMass is attractive to deer very soon after germination. But the grains and beans will attract long into the season.
Soil Type: Will grow in all soil types pending adequate soil moisture is available.
How to Plant: This blend can be successfully grown anywhere that soybeans and peas will grow. It can be planted by broadcasting the seed on a well prepared seed bed at 25 to 30 pounds per acre, then lightly covering the seed 1/2 of an inch. For the best results plant BioMass, or BioMass all Legume with a drill at the rate of 25 lbs per acre and planting depth of 1/2 of an inch. To conserve soil moisture plant with a no-till drill after spraying the soil with Roundup or BioMaxx Herbicide (glyphosate) - this kills all existing vegetation while conserving soil moisture.
When to Plant: BioMass requires daytime temperatures in the 70's or higher to ensure rapid germination. It can be planted anytime during the late spring and through the summer as long as adequate soil moisture is available.
