Biologic Green Patch Plus is a fall planting that combines the proven attractiveness of transitional grains with the nutrition and attraction of genuine New Zealand brassicas and clovers. The result is an economical forage blend that establishes quickly and provides an irresistible food plot from germination through the end of hunting season. Green Patch Plus will deliver scientifically proven performance in large food plots.
How to Plant Green Patch Plus is best planted by spreading the seed on a well-prepared seedbed at 40 lbs. per acre, then using a cultipacker to cover the seed. Broadcasting the seed on a well-prepared seedbed just prior to a rain also produces an excellent stand — the rain serves to bury the seed the appropriate depth (1/4 inch) and ensures adequate soil moisture for germination. Disking is not a recommended method of covering the seed — this would bury the seed too deep to allow germination.
When to Plant Green Patch Plus can be planted anytime after September 1st in the south, and as late as late October, given adequate soil moisture is available. In northern climates such as New York and Michigan, it should be planted at least 30 days before frost date, depending on available soil moisture.
