MonsterBuck's Brassica Mix is a combination of winter rye, canola (rape) and turnips. This mix is great in the fall for forage. Planting these three seeds for forage will get you a lot of foilage and also very quick to germinate. When planting this mix in the fall, the winter rye will reach about two feet and then go dormant. The following spring, the rye will come back to life. This gives the grower the option to let the rye go to seed or to plow it under as a green manure. In the fall, try to plant a minimum of 4-6 weeks before your average frost date.
MonsterBuck's Annual Forage Blend is a mixture of early maturing oats, canola (rape), and turnips. This palatable mix can be seeded in either the spring or fall. When spring seeded, it is a great fit for areas that are newly broken ground. The products in this mix are aggressive and will compete with weed pressures. When fall seeded, it is an excellent option for individuals who intend to plant another crop right away the following spring. Try to plant a minimum of 4-6 weeks before your average frost date.
Turnips are both cold-hardy and drought-tolerant. They can be planted late-even as a second crop-and provide high-quality grazing late in the fall. Turnip planted in July will provide grazing from September to November. The most vigorous root growth takes place during periods of low temperature (40 to 60 F) in the fall. The leaves maintain their nutritional quality even after repeated exposure to frost. Turnips grows best in a moderately deep loam, fertile and slightly acid soil. Turnip does not do well in soils that are of high clay texture, wet or poorly drained. For good root growth turnip needs a loose, well aerated soil.
Ideal for Wildlife Food Plots! Deer love both the foilage and the roots. Excellent attractant for whitetail deer. Grows best in 55 degree soil temperature or warmer. Grows best when planting as stand alone crop. Seed when ground temp reaches 55 degrees or higher. Sugar Beet seed should not be planted greater than 1.5 in. deep. The plant has a taproot system that utilizes water and soil nutrients to depths of 5 to 8 ft. The life expectancy of sugar beet leaves varies from 45 to 65 days and is temperature dependent. Sugar beets are well adapted to a wide range of soil types. Sugar beets are produced on coarse textured sandy soils to high organic matter, high clay content, silty clay loam soils.
In late fall after the first deep freeze of the year, a chemical reaction occurs where all the starch in the plant turns to sugar, making canola candy to the wildlife.
