What is BioLogic's Premium Perennial Blend For Food Plots?
BioLogic’s Premium Perennial Blend was developed to provide white-tailed deer
with a nutritious, highly palatable blend of forages throughout the entire
growing season. These forages have been proven by extensive research in New
Zealand, and tested in North America, to allow deer to maximize their antler
development and weight gain potential. This is accomplished by using a
combination of perennial and annual species. The perennial portion of this blend
provides forage that is high in digestible protein and minerals during the
spring and summer, when these nutrients are critical to antler and healthy fawn
development. In addition, the perennial components of this blend are extremely
palatable and drought resistant, providing quality forage for your herd even
during adverse growing conditions. With the addition of the Brassicas, the large
leafed annual species, the blend yields extremely high tonnage of quality forage
per acre. The brassicas selected for this blend make it an excellent source of
needed nutrition for your deer herd before they enter the winter stress period.
The result is a unique forage blend that truly addresses a deer herd’s
nutritional needs throughout the entire growing season.
To maintain this
optimum forage rotation in the same plot, simply establish a Premium Perennial
plot. Then broadcast BioLogic’s Maximum, composed of the desired brassica
varieties, directly onto the existing perennial crop during the early fall
portion of the second growing season.
Resource managers can expect the perennial portion of this blend to grow for
4 to 5 years if the appropriate lime and fertilizer is applied annually.. This
blend feature forages that grow in a wide variety of soil conditions and have
been shown to average over 30% crude protein and over 80% total digestible
nutrients. BioLogic’s Premium Perennial uses a unique blend of forages that
provide the type of forage best suited for the annual cycle of a whitetail’s
Planting Premium Perennial Seed
BioLogic’s New Zealand Premium Blend will perform best when planted in a
firm, well-prepared seedbed. This blend can be easily planted by using a drill,
or you can machine or hand broadcast the seed. The seed should not be covered
with more than a 1/4 inch of soil. The use of a cultipacker is an excellent
method to cover the seed. As with any seed, for best results apply lime and
fertilizer as recommended by a soil test. If a soil test cannot be performed,
apply a ton of lime and 300 pounds of 13-13-13 fertilizer per acre or simply use
BioLogic’s new pHFertilizer.
When To Plant Perennial Premium
In the South, BioLogic’s New Zealand Premium Perennial Blend should be
planted during the early fall, as soon as enough soil moisture is available for
seed germination. Planting BioLogic’s New Zealand Premium Perennial Blend in the
spring may limit root growth due to frequent summer drought conditions during
the growing season.
In Northern climates, where the soil might freeze before
the plants’ root systems are established, it is always better to plant
perennials in the spring. In these areas, BioLogic’s New Zealand Premium
Perennial Blend should be planted when the soil temperature is 50 degrees or
higher and there is adequate soil moisture to ensure germination.
