North Ridge Wildlife Forage, Forage Greens ( Brassica ) This in a plot beside a clover plot is a very effective food plot plan for any property. It provides food for almost an entire year.

Yea tom apples and crab apples. That looks really good teddy. How do you keep the deer from eating it to nothing? I can hardly get my plots started. Your look untouched. Maybe i need to make them bigger?

They get hit pretty hard still, but the ticket is this blend has no fillers. It has 100% turnip radish and rape seed in it, so it produces so many plants that even after being foraged pretty hard it still looks full. And some of the turnips are hybrids designed for great leaf growth and regrowth, some are designed for amazing bulb production. In the end some of our turnip plots still get hammered before they have a chance to get this full. But if you plant brassicas next to a clover, usually the deer will focus on the clover until the fall when the turnips really start getting sweet and the clover starts going dormant. That is another reason I recommend planting both plots near one another if there is enough land to plant that is.
But there are still times when you do everything you can, and your brassicas will get decimated before they ever get a chance to get super full!
