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.

Excellent Mix for late season post season
Planted this in 2021 and had deer on it late afternoon everyday. In the spring there was not a turnip left in the field. Planted it again this past summer with the same results. Caught two 150 class bucks in it but haven't been able to get a shot yet!! This will be a yearly planting around my 5-6 food plots going long into the future.
I added the daikon radish to this mix to add even more. This blend is awesome and the deer love it !
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.

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