Title: Throw and Grow
Post by: 12 Ring on February 26, 2007, 11:51:24 AM
Has anyone ever used this stuff I don't have enough cleared land to put in food plots. I was just woundering if any one used this on there land and if it worked for them.

Never heard of it.  What is it (what plants)?

I haven't either, but I found the break down and a couple of reviews on it:
reviews on it:

Quote
Forage Tetraploid Ryegrass:
Tetraploid rye-grass produces a higher quality forage with more protein and sugar content than any other ryegrass. We have selected only the best tetraploid ryegrass varieties so that you will have larger, more palatable plants that will continue to vigorously grow to provide a more nutritious food plot for your deer.

Forage Clovers:
The best of the fast growing forage clovers have been selected to give your herd a reliable source of nutrition. These annual clovers grow more quickly than other clovers and have the potential to grow well over 24” in height, providing your deer herd with tons of palatable forage. These forage clovers’ consistent high level of protein (up to 35%) and their mineral content make it a forage that deer both need and prefer.

Forage Rape Brassica:
The best yielding New Zealand forage rape brassica to deliver the highest levels of protein and mineral content of any annual forage available on the market today, providing up to 38% protein. This forage rape has been adapted to an extremely wide range of soils and weather conditions and will provide abundant large-leaf forage into the winter months. Average mature plant height is 24“ tall. Once mature, they begin fixing more sugars in their leaves and become a huge attractant to deer.

bring them back, November 10, 2006
By discouraged from Northern,Ca  (read all my reviews)
 

"I
bought this seed just to see how much wild life there was on the
property.I planted this on one of the hills on the back of my property
and within a few days it was growing.watching it grow for a couple of
weeks I noticed it wasn't getting very tall,so I knew something must be
eating it.to my amaze there was not only several deer tracks but also
several turkey tracks as well.the former owners of the property pretty
well chased the wild life out (over hunting ) and I can see this plot
is bring them back,may even have to fence it off just so it can get
taller.this seed works and recomend it to any one the has a hard to
grow area,it does work.next season I will get to do a little private
hunt of my own."

Between the clover and brassica, it should do pretty good.  I would be kinda leery of it though with the rye grass in it.  With any type of "grass" like that, the stuff usually chokes out anything else you've got.

For those of you that don't know, BC is formally educated in this field. My money would be on what BC says on this matter.

I have used it with good results have to watch it when it starts to get about 2 to three inches high turkeys love the stuff and deer will paw it up if you plant small spots I plant it in front of some of my tree stands in the woods draws the deer in they feel comfortable because there in the woods so some bigger bucks come in while you still have good light. rake up and area of 20 to thirty yards in a half moon shape in front of stand so when there eating along with give you good angles as they turn to feed. it's works good and for the most part a good all season draw.
