you may have seen my posts on my plots over the last few years. ten years ago i had a small food plot company that really took off, my business doubled in sales each of the first two years. Then i got married, bought a house, went into debt, needed to make an investment into the company to go to the next level with our product. So I chickened out and stopped selling my custom seed blend. Here I set 10 years later, the food plot industry has just erupted, and I realize God had me positioned 10 years ago to really have a huge impact in the hunting industry. Over the last 8 years I have really been developing a brassica's mix that is highly successful in growth and is also highly attractive to the deer's taste buds from September to march. Last month I felt like the Lord gave me the go ahead to start a business again selling food plot blends and working with guys on habitat solutions. My goal is to one day hand a successful company off to my son who is currently 5. So here are some pictures of the product at maturity. the mix was planted on august 1st 2013. These plants are from today October 24th 2013. The plot averages around 2-4 plants per square foot. I have around an acre that all looks just like this. I cut the tops off and weighed the green leafy matter, there was 13 pounds of greens in this 6 square foot. then I weighed the roots all washed free of dirt there was 8 pounds of root. So there was roughly 21 pounds of edible plant in these three square foot I took these plants from. that means there is 21*43560= 914,760 pounds / 6 (152,460lbs per acre) /2000 lbs= 76.23 tons of forage on this plot for the deer to eat between now and next spring. Those numbers blow me away more than the thought of the fact that it equals out weight wise to 1,525, 100 pound feed sacks of shelled corn. or 3,050 50 pound bags of apples or beets! I have roughly 200 dollars an acre into a complete acre of brasicas. that's fuel, spray, seed, lime and fertilizer. complete acre 200 dollars for pounds of food for my whitetails. that's a cost of two dollars and sixty two cents per ton of forage. (2.62) to buy the equivalent of shelled corn would require me to purchase 1525 bags @ 6 dollars a bag. would cost 9,150.00! apples would require me to buy 3050 bags @ 4 dollars a bag = 12,200 dollars. I numbers don't lie, good food plots equal healthier deer, better hunting, and an enjoyment of the outdoors! Sorry to type so much, my mind has been blown, YOURS? If you want to get some of this seed next year PM and I will get in touch with you in the spring! this things a beast!
