Spring Plot Oat Pea Mix - Annual
Spring Plot is an annual mix of forage oats, producing green foliage with an erect growth habit. Buckwheat grows well in almost any soil, produces clusters of small white flowers forming triangular shaped black seeds that shatter easily giving access for seed and stalk feeding. Forage peas offer leafy high palatable forage with high dry matter yields. An ideal mix for early spring to establish a food source that is available for energy and protein needs for developing antlers and improving doe lactation. Spring Plot is an early maturing crop that is great for an early food source, ideal to enhancing soil for fall brassica planting. Will grow in a wide variety of soils, has poor frost tolerance.

this was planted for whitetail dear. The plot was dominated by buckwheat which the dear did not show much interested in after the first week of growth. Now the plot is almost 30" tall buckwheat is flowering, oats and forage peas were chocked out early and dear have not interest. This would be a good turkey blend, but for whitetail, no.
