First time using this product with the winter oats,the deer absolutely love them since the first frost
Won’t plant anything else! I have tried other radishes over the years and have never had the deer destroy a food plot like they did these radishes!
It is a great early season food plot choose for our program the deer really love them
Grows quick, if you can keep the deer off it!!!! Massive tonnage and easy to grow. Once you get it established, it can withstand some pretty heavy grazing pressure!
Very tolerant to rock soil we have. Growing very nicely. Planted a little early to try these. New shoots and coming along nicely. Let’s hope the deer think that also.
Raving Radish in Northern Wisconsin
We’ve been planting Whitetail Institute seeds almost exclusively for 20+ years. Always use their soil test kits and fertilize/lime as called for. 6 acres over 5 plots in total. Tried the radish for the first time in August and they are great. I wish I could attach photos. We 6” rain in the week after planting which washed out areas, but the areas that took met expectations. Only regret is that I should have sprayed herbicide for grass. The tubers are sticking out of ground several inches and are generally 6-8 inches long. The foliage is being browsed but doesn’t appear to inhibit growth. The graze cage shows another 6-10 inches of growth as of 10/17/21. Unlike the Winter Greens which are usually grazed heavy and are no longer a draw in November my hope is the radish will continue to be productive through out the season.
Planted three1/2 acre plots. Kentucky. Staggered planting over a 4 week period to offset browsing pressure. Worked up the soil really well and planted right before a rain. I had sprouts within 2 days and mature plants within 2 weeks. This is the first time my plots look like the photos on the website. They look great and the deer love it. My new go-to for fall planting.
I purchased a bag in August of 2020 and planted them only in front of food plot tree stands to see if they really would grow when just scattered on the ground. I planted them just prior to Labor Day, so too late in the normal planting season for my area of upstate New York. My hunting companions and I were pleasantly surprised on how well they germinated and grew. We planted them July 8th this year, and scattered them throughout our four food plots. Cannot wait to see the results in late September!!
Must have product, quick germination, deer love it. Planted between rows in our cornfield!!!
