used this product last year and grew amazing to early to say how it will do this year as it was planted in late June
Beets & Greens features annual seed varieties that are designed to work together to attract and hold deer throughout the fall and winter.
These include the Whitetail Institute’s proprietary kale, turnip and radish varieties, as well as the sweet attractiveness of sugar beets. These components are included in Beets & Greens in ratios that Whitetail Institute testing has proven will provide abundant, highly attractive tonnage from early fall through late winter, as well as tubers to help deer through the harsh winter months. Designed for planting in the fall, Beets & Greens establishes and grows quickly.
If you’ve been looking for an incredibly sweet all-brassica food plot product that provides top attraction for fall, winter and everything between, look no farther than Imperial Whitetail Beets & Greens.
Beets & Greens is a diverse blend of multiple brassica varieties, including Tall Tine Turnips, sugar beets and proprietary radishes and kale that establish and grow quickly, provide lots of succulent foliage above ground, and produce turnips, beets and radishes underground that will attract deer and provide them with various food options from fall through winter.
Forage Components and Performance
Beets & Greens is designed to maximize attraction in two ways: through the exceptional attractiveness of each of its components and by offering them in precise ratios so deer always have multiple food sources in the same plot from fall through winter. And like other Whitetail Institute seed blends, Beets & Greens includes seed varieties that are only available in Whitetail Institute products. Tall Tine Turnip, the only turnip variety scientifically developed specifically for food plots for deer, is included in Beets & Greens and produces abundant foliage and large, sweet tubers. The foliage provides variety with other brassicas in Beets & Greens as they begin to attract deer during the early hunting season, and it becomes even sweeter with the first frosts of fall. The turnip tubers continue to at tract deer and provide them with critical nutrition during the cold winter months. Sugar beets are included in Beets & Greens because they’re very high in sugar — so high they’re commercially grown throughout the world for sugar production. Sugar beet tops are highly attractive to deer immediately, offering them substantial levels of protein and the carbohydrates they need for energy from fall into the late season and beyond. Beets & Greens also includes the Whitetail Institute’s proprietary kale variety, WINA 210, which has proven through trials to be the most attractive kale variety the Whitetail Institute has ever tested. Unlike kale varieties with coarse leaves that grow in a tight head, WINA 210 kale grows large, tall, individual leaves that are highly palatable to deer. The Whitetail Institute’s proprietary radish, WINA 412, is also included in Beets & Greens to maximize the attraction of the stand throughout the season by adding variety to the forage and tuber offerings of the plot. In addition to fulfilling their roles as forage components in Beets & Greens, WINA 412 Radish and Tall Tine Turnip can also help improve soil quality in two ways. First, the turnip and radish tubers drill down as they grow, helping to aerate heavier, compacted soils. WINA 412 Radish, for example, produces tubers that can push several feet even into compacted clay soils and grow as thick as soft drink bottles, much larger than the small, round radishes we commonly see in grocery stores. Second, any turnip and radish tubers remaining the next spring also add organic matter to the soil as they break down.
Beets & Greens is designed to establish and grow quickly, providing deer with abundant, highly attractive foliage from early fall into the cold winter months. Its tubers start attracting deer in the late fall and continue to serve as a vital food source through winter. The Whitetail Institute even coats Beets & Greens seeds with Rainbond to help ensure seedling survival. Rainbond absorbs up to 200 times its weight in moisture from the soil and keeps it next to the seeds as they sprout and grow.
