Real World Deadly Dozen Planting Instructions
Planting Date – RWWP Deadly Dozen is a fall-planted product. A good general rule to remember in regards to planting dates is as follows – Along Interstate-70 plant Deadly Dozen around September 1st. For every 100 miles north of I-70 move the planting date up sooner by 1 week. For every 100 miles south of I-70 move the planting date back later by 1 week. It is very important not to plant Deadly Dozen too early or it will lose some of its palatability by the time hunting season opens and you want the deer to be hitting it hardest.
Site Prep – First start by spraying your plot at least 2 weeks before food plot planting time to kill any vegetation. When it is time to plant prepare a good seedbed by disking or tilling the ground so that it is primarily free of bigger dirt-clods. The soil does not need to be worked into a powder-fine consistency but just free of large clods.
Planting – Due to the different sizes of seed within Real World Deadly Dozen, we say broadcasting the seed is the only good way to plant it. After broadcasting the seed onto the worked ground, use a culti-packer or roller to push the seed into the ground. The goal is to get the seed covered with about ½ -inch of soil. Make sure the seed is not more than 1 inch deep. If some of the seed is exposed on top of the ground, it can still grow as long as it gets adequate moisture.
