Deer Food Plot Seed: Forage Oats

PlotSpike Forage Oats make a fantastic early season, annual plot. These oats were breed specifically for forage and yield a tremendous amount of high quality forage in the Fall of the year. University trials show that PlotSpike forage oats are capable of producing over 10,000 lbs. of quality forage per acre. PlotSpike Forage Oats are considered cold tolerant when compared to other oat varieties but like any oat, they will freeze out in Northern climates. Expect the plants to survive until you get several hours of temperatures under 20 degrees. Typically this is after most of the season has passed. PlotSpike Forage Oats for food plots can be planted in August and September (latter in the deep South if need be) for grazing during bow season. Southern food plots will last all winter but oat food plots North of Tennessee or at high elevations will most likely freeze out.

Plant PlotSpike Forage Oats at 100 lbs. of seed per acre. Apply at least 300 lbs of 13-13-13 or equivalent at planting. PlotSpike Forage Oats respond very well to high nitrogen fertilizers like ammonia nitrate (34-0-0) applied after the plants emerge. You can apply 150-200 pounds of 34-0-0 every 45 days and not harm your plants. In our seed fields we use the equivalent of 800 lbs of ammonia nitrate per growing season.
