Sit in on this podcast to learn an alternative to planting a food plot and fall food plot without a tractor and Jeff Sturgis himself talking about the buckwheat food plot program and using DeerGro’s PlotStart and PlotBoost with it.
When to Spray DeerGro
PlotStart needs to be applied at or before the time of planting. In this case, you are laying over buckwheat and spraying glyphosate on top of it. PlotStart cannot be mixed in the same tank as the glyphosate, so spraying PlotStart (2.5 gallons per acre) over the laid-over buckwheat after spraying the glyphosate is the best solution. Once that rain finally arrives the PlotStart will work into the soil and begin increasing germination success and boosting the first few weeks of growth for the plots…besides changing the soil pH as a lime alternative.
You can spray PlotStart at the beginning at the buckwheat planting, and then again in the fall once you lay it over, doubling down on effectiveness and pH changing capabilities, maximizing benefits for the growing season. Once the food plot is up and running you will want to spray PlotBoost over the plot 3-5 weeks after germination. Make sure the tank is completely clean of any glyphosate that could damage the plot. Spray in the early morning or afternoon hours to avoid and sun/droplet damage.
