Only tried it once and it was much less than successful. Perhaps it was worked for others??

Have two other remote no tractors access areas I would like to come up with some product to grow?

most i've talked to said the only thing that grew was the rye grass. If you have clover, don't ruin it by introducing rye grass, as you already have the better of the two growing successfully.

If you have clover stay with it....Maybe in July till up a short strip and plant some turnips , or rape......

And see if you can give it a good mowing once a year to promote new, succulent growth...

I am curious for those who state it is mostly rye grass what brand were you using? A friend from work used it down in Virgina and said that the deer in their area were quite attracted to it.

Anything from mossy oak has always worked well for me I really liked the winter bulbs and sugar beets fertilizer has been the key for me the stuff will grow without it but so much better with it It's almost not worth the time and money without it

Throw and pray

If you have equipment I would plant a mix of clover, brassicas and groundhog radishes

Any foodplot is alot of work. Even the clover you have now will be useless in six months if you don't put work into it mowing and spraying for weeds/grasses.

Mowing is the key to clover after you have a good start. It will spread and produce new shoots which the deer and turkey love. When the clover gets old without mowing it gets tough and the deer will pay less attention.
