Alfalfa Seed For Food Plots

Medicago sativa

Alfalfa Food Plot SeedAlfalfa seed produces a food plot plant that is full of protein and other nutrients that make it one of the best deer forages you can plant. The nutrients in alfalfa help deer grow body mass and bigger antlers. Alfalfa in a food plot is guaranteed to attract deer, turkey and quail. Alfalfa food plots also provide a habitat for turkey and quail as they will use the large leaves for cover and feed on insects that are attracted to the food plot.

Alfalfa has a tap root that can extend to a depth of over five feet making a drought tolerant food plot plant. Alfalfa is a cool season perennial that will live for up to six years if properly managed. Good food plot management of Alfalfa will create more forage per acre than any other legume. After 50% bloom alfalfa should be mowed off or cut and baled into hay and removed from food plot area to allow new tender Alfalfa plants room to grow.

Seedland is proud to offer the quality Alfalfa seeds for food plots below.
