Q. WHAT IS EXTREME
A. Extreme is a perennial food plot product that consists of forbs,
legumes and other high preference forages that allow you to plant in
soils and climates that normally will not support a long-lasting
perennial food plot. Until the introduction of Extreme, these lower pH
soils and drier climates were sometimes difficult for even an annual
crop to produce.
Q. HOW LONG WILL EXTREME LAST?
A. Extreme can last up to 5 years without replanting. Some research has
shown much longer stand life. Lifespan will be determined by weather,
soil fertility and weed control.
Q. IS EXTREME BETTER THAN IMPERIAL CLOVER AND ALFA-RACK?
A. Extreme was designed to fill a niche that our research identified.
Imperial Clover and Alfa-Rack are designed to be planted in 6.5 pH soils
with a minimum annual rainfall of 30”. Extreme can thrive in lower pH
soils and requires a minimum of only 15 inches of annual rainfall. Ideal
pH for optimum production and usage is between 6.0-7.0.
Q. SHOULD I PLANT IMPERIAL CLOVER OR EXTREME?
A. You need to soil test to determine soil fertility and pH. Then decide
if the soil gets and holds enough moisture to support Imperial Clover.
If either pH or moisture falls below the ideal levels for Imperial
Clover then Extreme is your answer.
Q. HOW DO I PLANT EXTREME?
A. Soil test for a forb planting. Follow the recommendations for
any lime and fertilizer additions. Add the recommended amounts of lime
and fertilizer and thoroughly disc them into the soil. Level the area
with a drag or cultipacker. Broadcast the seed. Cultipack the area after
spreading the seed. Do not drag the area or the seed may get too deep to
Q. IS pH IMPORTANT?
A. As with most perennials, always strive for the pH to be 6.5 to 7. But
in cases where the pH is lower, Extreme will do well. The advantage of
raising the pH for an Extreme planting is to sweeten the taste of the
plants to get even better performance and usage by the animals. With
higher pH levels the plants can establish much quicker.
Q. WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ADDING EXTREME TO MY EXISTING
A. Extreme allows you the opportunity to plant areas that don’t normally
produce perennial crops, with a top-quality deer attracting forage.
Extreme is highly attractive to your deer and sometimes these difficult
areas can be some of your best plots for hunting. It also adds
diversity/variety to your food plot offerings.
Q. HOW MUCH AREA WILL 56 POUNDS PLANT?
A. 56 pounds of Extreme will plant up to 2 ˝ acres. (22.4 pounds per
acre) We also have 28 and 5.6 pound bags available.
Q. IS EXTREME DROUGHT RESISTANT?
A. As with any crop, nothing is completely drought proof but it is the
most drought resistant high quality forage we have found. It has been
tested in Florida, Texas and the sandy upper peninsula of Michigan with
great results. Good results were even achieved in Nevada where annual
rainfalls were around 16”. Extreme requires moisture to establish.
Follow the planting time recommendations to increase the odds of
sufficient moisture at the time of establishment.
|"Extreme is the most drought-resistant perennial blend
available for whitetail. This amazing product stays green longer
than other perennials even during severe drought, scorching heat and
bitter cold. It really opens the door to perennial plots in some of
the harshest growing regions, including most of Texas and Florida,
the mountain West, the Great Plains and Canada any place that
receives at least 15 inches of rainfall a year."
