When To Fertilize
The first application of wildlife food plot fertilizer should be made when the
game plot is planted or when native vegetation, trees, and shrubs produce new growth
in the spring. For maximum growth, a second application of 1/2
the rate of the first application should be applied approximately
3 months after planting or date of first application.
Rate of Application:
For optimum growing production of your wild game food plots
use the following rates:
Large Acreage: Use 500 lbs per / acre
Small Plots: Use 11.5 lbs per 1000 sq. ft.
This results in an application rate of 75 lbs Nitrogen / 25 lbs
of Phosphorus / 50 lbs of Potassium per acre. Your second
application should be 250 lbs. per acre or 5.75 lbs per 1000 sq.
Method of Application
Spread fertilizer uniformly over the desired
planting area or natural vegetation area. For best results apply
fertilizer prior to planting, as a starter fertilizer, and incorporate into the soil by
tilling or disking. Wild game fertilizer is excellent for use
with all game seed mixes sold by Seedland.
Fertilizing Native Vegetation & Shrubs
Apply 2 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. For individual shrubs apply ¼ lb. (1/2 cup) per foot diameter of branch spread or for plants three feet tall. Add an additional 1/8 lb. (1/4 cup) for each
additional foot of height or larger plants. Apply when native vegetation produces new growth in the spring.
Measure trees 4' above base to determine the diameter. All trees over 6" in diameter apply 2 lbs. per 1" in diameter. All trees less than 6" in diameter apply 1 lb. per 1" in diameter.
Spread fertilizer evenly under the trees' drip line, staying 1" from the trunk at all times.
