Utilization based on game camera survey on this crop choice + evidence of use
This was my first attempt planting this variety and I was simply blown away. It emerged quickly and became so dense I thought I had planted it too heavy and it would be stunted. It kept growing denser and taller and the results were simply phenomenal.
The deer were in it right away but they largely ignored the brassicas and were after the Triticale and Oats. Usage of this plot was directly related to how cold it was. As soon as the temps plummeted we had hoards of deer coming for the brassicas. Even though this plot is quite small, because it grew so dense, we had greens all the way into February and this became our top draw during the winter. Great activity.
I've been planting Brassica plots for a while but this was one of the best result I've had, it was outstanding both in deer activity and in growth. It was amazing and I will definately use this again, perhaps for some of my larger plots.
