Turnip Seed For Deer Food Plots

Turnips For Deer Food PlotsTurnip Seed For Deer Food Plots - Turnips are a member of the brassica family and deer love them. Turnips are an efficient food plot crop in that deer will consume the whole turnip right down to the root and every part of a turnip plant contains protein. Long consumed by humans, turnips are making a resounding impact in the world of deer food plots as well as in livestock pasture and farm cover crop usage. This is especially true for the popular purple top turnips.

Turnips become more palatable to deer after a good frost or snow as the leaves become sweeter. Turnips are a cool season crop that is well adapted for the northern USA, but also may be planted in the Southern states during the cool weather season.

Seedland is happy to offer the turnip seed products listed below. Please click on the products for detailed information.

Growing Turnips for Food Plots Or Pastures

Deer and Livestock graze turnip tops and roots readily with this Brassica family of forage being of high quality. The development of turnip varieties with partially exposed roots rendered the roots more available to grazing animals. In general, the root Brassicas are fast-growing, high yielding and well adapted to seeding into existing food plots or pastures with little or no tillage or to seeding into a conventionally prepared seedbed.

Areas Of Adaptation For Turnips

Turnips are a cool-weather crop and well adapted for the northern parts of the United States and Europe and for Great Britain and Canada. However, truck-growing areas of the South also produce turnip roots and greens in all seasons for human consumption. The storage root can overwinter in areas of mild winter or with adequate snow cover for insulation and produce 8 to 10 leaves from the crown in a broad, low-spreading growth habit the following spring.

Nutrition Info For Turnips in Food Plots or Pasture

Turnip produces high-quality forage if grazed before heading. Deer and Livestock eat the stems, leaves and roots of turnip plants. Above-ground parts normally contain 20 to 25% crude protein, 65 to 80% in vitro digestible dry matter (IVDDM), about 20% neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and about 23% acid detergent fiber (ADF). The roots contain 10 to 14% crude protein and 80 to 85% IVDDM. It is recommended that turnips be planted and grazed along with other food plot or pasture crops such as winter grasses such as rye grass.

Climate, Soil, & Fertilization of Turnips

Brassicas, such as turnips, are both cold-hardy and drought-tolerant. They can be planted late-even as a second crop-and provide high-quality grazing late in the fall. Turnip planted in July will provide grazing from September to November. The most vigorous root growth takes place during periods of low temperature (40 to 60°F) in the fall. The leaves maintain their nutritional quality even after repeated exposure to frost.

Like other Brassicas, turnip grows best in a moderately deep loam, fertile and slightly acid soil. Turnip does not do well in soils that are of high clay texture, wet or poorly drained. For good root growth turnip needs a loose, well aerated soil.

Soil tests should be taken to assure proper fertilization of Turnips and other Brassicas. Lime acid soils to pH 6.0. Fertilizers should be applied at the time of seeding or within 3 days of seeding to give the crop a competitive edge on weeds. Apply 100 lb/acre nitrogen to soils containing 2 to 5% organic matter, 120 lb/acre if less than 2% organic matter and 60 to 80 lb/acre if more than 5% organic matter. Requirements for phosphorus and potassium are similar to those of a small grain.

Fertilizer applications should be banded at least 2 in. to the side and below the seed or broadcast. Boron and sulfur may also be needed. If the soil tests "low" in boron, apply 1 lb boron/acre on sandy soils, and twice this amount on other soils. Apply 10 to 15 lb of S/acre if a soil sulfur test indicates a need for this element.

Planting Turnips For Food Plots & Pasture

Seeding Dates: Sept. - Dec. or Mar. - May ; Soil temperatures should be at least 50°

Method and Rate of Seeding: Turnip seed can be planted in 6 to 8 in. rows at a rate of 1.5 to 2.5 lb/acre with a minimum-till drill when sod seeding. In conventionally prepared seedbeds, the crop can be seeded with a forage crop seeder or broadcast followed by cultipacking. The seed should not be covered with more than 1/4 in. of soil. A plant population of 5 to 6 per sq. ft. is desirable.
