TURKEYS LOVE CHUFA. DUCKS LOVE CHUFA. IT’S JUST A GUESS, BUT WE’RE FIGURING YOU’LL LOVE CHUFA TOO.

In partnership with the National Wild Turkey Federation, BioLogic introduces a new addition to our game management lineup — Turkey Gold Chufa. Not only is chufa incredibly nutritious but wild turkeys and waterfowl have been known to scratch for hours to get at these small tubers. Planted at a rate of 40 lbs. per acre, chufa can be grown successfully all across the country, simply and easily. Best planted in late Spring and early Summer, Turkey Gold Chufa is a great addition to any managed property.
