Siberian Kale Seed - Siberian Kale is a cool season annual food plot green that is high in protein and highly digestible by deer. Siberian Kale has a protein content that ranges from 15% to 20%. The leaves are over 90% digestible. Well maintained Siberian Kale food plots are highly productive and can produce eight or more tons of forage per acre.
This high production makes Siberian Kale and other greens or brassicas suitable for planting on small acreage food plots for deer. Siberian Kale grows best in cool climates and will benefit from a fall frost. Cold days and nights sweeten kale while hot weather produces bitter tough leaves. Optimal soil temperature for growing kale is between 60°-65°. Kale does best when pH of the soil is between 5.5 and 6.5. Kale requires moderate amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
