Made of 100% New Zealand brassicas, the plant species in this blend mature at different rates to ensure highly palatable forage for the entire life of the plot, particularly after the first frost, when sugars flow from the roots to the leaves. Maximum was originally developed by the New Zealand venison industry to promote rapid weight gain, optimum deer health and massive antler growth.

UP TO 10 TONS OF FORAGE PER ACRE. 38% CRUDE PROTEIN. 80% DIGESTIBLE.

Coverage - 9 lbs per acre   Soil Type - Will grow in all soil types pending adequate soil moisture is available.

Maximum is best planted by spreading the seed on a well-prepared seedbed, and then using a cultipacker to cover the seed. Broadcasting the seed just prior to a rain also produces an excellent stand — the rain serves to bury the seed the appropriate depth (1/4 inch) and ensures adequate soil moisture for germination. Disking is not a recommended method of covering the seed.

Maximum is very hardy and will germinate in drier conditions than other common fall food plot crops. However, some soil moisture is necessary, and is more critical than soil temperature. Ideally, plant Maximum at least 30 days before the first frost date, in any of the planting zones. Maximum can also be planted in the spring in northern climates – either frost-seeded or planted traditionally as soil temperatures stay consistently in the 50° or higher range.
