Biologic's Turkey Gold Chufa Seeds For Food Plots
BioLogic Chufas (chew-fa) are one of the most popular plantings for wild
turkeys. Each plant can grow 1-3 feet tall and produce 15-150 fingernail sized
tubers just below the soil’s surface. These small peanut-like tubers are
relished by wild turkeys and ducks. Turkeys scratch the tubers out of the ground
and feed on them from fall to spring. BioLogic has teamed up with the NWTF to
bring you the best quality chufas found anywhere and the information to help
your planting be successful. It is important to understand that chufas require
90-110 frost free days to mature. It is best to select open areas that receive

possible to get a decent volunteer stand from the previous year's crop if the
turkeys have not consumed all the tubers. If you have enough chufa left in the
field, you can spread 300 pounds of pH Fertilizer
per acre, thoroughly disk to incorporate the fertilizer and distribute the
chufa seed. We also recommend that you rotate your plots every few years to
prevent soil pests.
