Remote stands often provide the best opportunity for spotting mature bucks — and the worst location for a food plot. Without the ability to utilize machine cultivators or heavy amounts of soil additives, establishing a planting off the beaten trail can be challenging at best. The solution is BioLogic Hot Spot — a scientifically selected blend of wheat, deer radish, rye, and rape--designed to be fast-germinating, extremely attractive to deer and incredibly easy to plant. No soil-tilling is required; simply clear the ground and apply the seed. Ideal for planting near treestands and in woodland clearings — and for luring pressured bucks that shun high traffic locations.
How to Plant BioLogic Hot Spot will germinate anywhere the seed can be raked into the soil and receive at least 1/2 day of sunlight and adequate moisture. It is designed to cover an 11,000square foot area. Simply use a rake, leaf blower, etc. to expose the soil. For best results, apply some of BioLogic’s pHFERTILIZER (fast-acting lime causes rapid plant growth) or a regular1/4 acre rate of 10-10-10 to the area to be planted.
When to Plant BioLogic Hot Spot is formulated to germinate quickly, usually within one week of planting, and will remain extremely palatable for approximately 45 days. Plant late summer or early fall.
