Ultra Max is an Annual Premium blend of hybrid brassicas and very vigorous diploid grazing turnips. A selection of the most winter hardy and cold tolerant brassicas, very high in soluble protein and carbohydrates. These plants stand lush and tall, producing a very high yield of palatable forage, and have been known to stay green and lush in temperatures as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Ultra Max has the ability to overwinter better than most other brassicas and is very attractive for late season. Requires medium to high fertility for excellent yields, ideal for late summer planting in a firm seedbed with a pH of 5.2 or higher.

I have planted many different food plot seeds from Merit and this has to be the most productive out of all of them as far as a late summer-fall forage.It was looking really good 12" tall and nicely green.Then we had 2 frosts and that was it...The Venison have grazed right to the ground.!!I will plat again.

Although, our soil fought us with drying out too quickly, what did grow has remained solidly green even now! Will definitely buy again!
