Chicory Food Plot Seed Quick Facts

Cichorium intybus L.

Chicory is a perennial herb that has many uses and whitetail deer loves it! Here we will address the use of chicory in wildlife food plots.

  • Type of Crop: Chicory seed produces a leafy plant that is higher in nutritive and mineral content than alfalfa or cool-season grasses when managed properly.
  • Soil Adaptations: Chicory is suited to well drained or moderately drained soils with medium-to high-fertility levels and a pH of 5.5 or greater.
  • Food Plot Use: Chicory is very attractive to deer and other wildlife. Chicory may be planted alone, as a companion crop, or in a mixture of seeds usually legumes. Chicory will provide spring and summer food plot forage. Chicory is a very drought tolerant plant due to it's long tap root.
  • Growth Characteristics: Forage chicory is a low growing plant with broad leaves in the winter and looks very much like dandelion. With warm temperatures in the spring it produces large numbers of leaves from the crown. In late spring, after the establishment year, a few flower stems begin to develop from the crown and will reach heights of 6 feet if ungrazed.
  • Management of Chicory Food Plots: To maximize the life span of your chicory stand (5 to 7 years), it should be mown or grazed 80 to 100 days after your spring planting  leaving a stubble height of 1.5 to 2 inches. It is important to keep the stems that appear after the seeding year removed as this will affect the production potential of your chicory stand.

Chicory is perennial herb used for wildlife and cattle forage and is highly nutritional for summer and fall feedings. An excellent forage for cattle and deer that withstands heavy grazing. Chicory has a deep taproot, is very drought resistant and high in mineral as well as protein content. Great for deer food plots due to the mineral and protein advantages and can be planted with other crops like legumes and grasses.

Through its deep taproot, chicory has the ability to make minerals more available in leaves compared to other types of forage. Increased potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, zinc and sodium make Chicory leaves irresistible to whitetail deer. Chicory is a highly preferred, grazing tolerant plant with good drought resistance.
