King’s Trophy Forage Plus is a mixture of oats, wheat, triticale, cereal rye, and winter peas. The addition of winter peas helps add extra protein to the mix and nitrogen to the soil. This mix is composed of highly nutritious and palatable forages intended not only to attract deer in the fall, but to provide protein and nutrients during the winter/early spring months, when deer need to regain weight and begin early antler development. This mix will also provide foraging areas to quail and turkeys in late spring and early summer during nesting. If allowed to mature, plots can provide good dove hunting.
