Mossy Oak BioLogic Deer Radish Food Plots can be planted all on their own or you can add them to other seed mixes in order to have the best possible food supply for your big bucks. A great benefit to using Radishes as food plots is that the roots will help penetrate hard soil layers to help improve the soils overall. These radishes are among the most attractive food plots and will certainly funnel deer off of the neighbors property. This is a best of both worlds option since the deer love both the foliage and the big roots. The entire plant is 100% consumable so that nothing goes to waste out in the field. Radishes are a great first plant for fields since they have properties that reduce or eliminate weeds from the field.
These Deer Radishes require some soil moisture in order to grow, although they can survive in a drier climate than most food plots. Soil moisture is more critical than temperature when deciding to plant radishes. Plant in early August in the North or 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.
