LOOKING TO DIVERSIFY YOUR FOOD PLOT PROGRAM WITH THE PERFECT BLEND OF PROTEIN AND ENERGY? BEET DOWN OFFERS A SPECIAL VARIETY OF SUGAR BEET DESIGNED TO PROVIDE TONS OF NUTRIENT-RICH FORAGE IN THE EARLY SEASON AND EXTREME ATTRACTION AS THE TEMPERATURES DROP IN THE LATE SEASON.

BEET DOWN IS BEST PLANTED ON ITS OWN AND CAN PROVIDE A HARDY CROP THAT CAN ADAPT TO A VARIETY OF GROWING CONDITIONS. PLANTED IN THE SPRING OR EARLY SUMMER, BEET DOWN WILL MATURE IN 90 TO 100 DAYS AND CAN PROVIDE 10-15 TONS OF FORAGE PER ACRE (IN OPTIMAL GROWING CONDITIONS). WHILE IT DOESN’T HANDLE COMPETITION WELL, ONCE ESTABLISHED BEET DOWN WILL PROVIDE HIGH PROTEIN LEAFY GREENS FOR EARLY SEASON ATTRACTION AND HIGHLY DIGESTIBLE TAP ROOTS PACKED WITH ENERGY FOR LATE SEASON. COLD WEATHER WILL HELP INCREASE THE SUGAR (ENERGY) CONTENT OF THE TAP ROOTS AND ATTRACTIVENESS TO DEER, BUT EXPECT BEET DOWN TO PROVIDE PLENTY OF ATTRACTION ALL FALL LONG. WHEN PLANTING BEET DOWN, MAKE SURE YOUR PH IS IN THE DESIRED RANGE (6.2-7.0) AND DO YOUR BEST TO CREATE A GOOD SEED BED, VOID OF ANY COMPETITION OR DEBRIS. WE UTILIZE A SPECIAL COATING MATERIAL ON ALL BEET DOWN SEEDS TO HELP IMPROVE GERMINATION AND YIELD…WHICH ALLOW YOU TO MAXIMIZE FORAGE PRODUCTION AND ATTRACTIVENESS TO DEER.
