UP TO 10 TONS OF FORAGE PER ACRE. 38% CRUDE PROTEIN. 80% DIGESTIBLE. NOT ONE SINGLE DOWNSIDE.
New Zealand brassicas are one of our most popular cultivars,
and for good reason. When it comes to yield, attractiveness and
nutritional value, Maximum is the absolute best annual forage available
to hunters and land managers. 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.

Palatability increases as the plants mature. Best late season through the winter. However, may be consumed as fast as it grows.
Will grow in all soil types pending adequate soil moisture is available.
How to Plant
Maximum is best planted by spreading the seed on a
well-prepared seedbed at nine (9) pounds per acre, 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 this would bury the seed too deep.
When to Plant
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 50degrees or higher range.
