New Zealand ProGraze® Perennial Forage Attractant
This biologist-developed forage was created to produce bigger bucks. Evolved® New Zealand ProGraze® Perennial Forage Attractant is a food plot seed that creates deer forage more digestible than native forages and contains some of the highest possible protein and mineral content.
It can be successfully planted in the spring and fall in most areas of the United States. It has a unique mixture of forage Brassicas, Chicory and Clovers.
Forage Brassica: The best yielding New Zealand forage brassicas (including rape and turnip varieties) are blended together to deliver the highest levels of protein and mineral content of any annual forage crop available on the market today, up to 38% protein. By blending brassica varieties, this mixture has been adapted to an extremely wide range of soils and weather conditions and will provide both abundant large-leaf and root forage into the winter months. Average mature plant height is 24" tall.
Perennial Forage Clover: The best of the proven perennial forage ladino clovers are used to attract deer and consistently provide high levels of protein and mineral content that deer will increasingly need throughout the entire year, up to 35% protein. All of the clover seeds are coated and inoculated to ensure nitrogen fixation of the clover plants. These plants were chosen for their protein and mineral content, high TDN and their drought resistance.
Perennial Forage Chicory: New Zealand’s standard year-round forage provider delivers the highest known levels of protein and mineral content of all perennial forage crops, in excess of 30%. This forage crop will establish itself during the first season, growing a long tap root similar to a carrot that stores nutrients and moisture for long dry periods. This increases the amount of available forage for the spring, summer and fall months. Average mature plant height is 15" tall.
Soil Preparation: Cultivate the soil 4" - 6" deep to remove competing weeds and add fertilizer and lime as recommended. After cultivating, it is important to level and pack the soil before seeding the plot. Lightly pack the soil by running over your food plot with an ATV or a roller.
a. Fertilizer Requirements: A soil test should be performed prior to planting to determine your plot’s need for fertilizer and lime. If a soil test cannot be done, prepare the seed bed by applying up to 300 pounds of 13-13-13 fertilizer or equivalent per acre.
b. pH of Soil and Liming: The recommended soil pH is 6.0-7.5. A soil test should be performed prior to planting to determine your soil pH and the need for lime and fertilizer. If a soil test cannot be done, prepare the seed bed by applying up to 2,000 pounds of lime per acre or use two gallons of gain per acre.
Planting Depth: ProGraze® contains small seeds that normally do not need to be completely covered. We recommend broadcasting the seed and then rolling the seed into the seed bed by running over your food plot with an ATV or a roller. Never cover the seeds with more than 3/16" of dirt.
Moisture: Soil moisture is vital to the plants being able to establish themselves. The soil should be moist when planting, with a reasonable expectation of future rainfall. If adequate moisture is not available for an extended period after planting, the plot may fail to establish properly.
ProGraze® will remain productive for 3 to 5 years if properly maintained. Fertilize your food plot twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall when moisture is available. When your food plot develops 15% or more weeds, cut your plot down to 10" during the spring or early summer.
