Hancock's Spring & Summer Food Plot Seed Mix
Back

Hancock's Spring & Summer Food Plot Seed Mix offers four high-quality, high-protein legumes to bring in the deer when native browse has become tough and low in nutrition. Hancock's Spring & Summer Food Plot Seed Mix will provide high protein nutrition throughout the spring and summer, into the fall until the first hard frost. High protein food plots will increase antler size, body weight and herd health. Our Spring & Summer Mix will continue to feed your deer herd into the first part of hunting season.

Product Information

  • Application or Use: Pasture, Food Plot, Cover Crop
  • Germination Time: 7 - 14 days, under optimal conditions
  • Growing Locations: Warm Season, Transition Zone, Cool Season
  • Height: 1 - 6 feet
  • Sunlight Requirements: 8+ hours, full sun for best results
  • Advantages: Provides high protein nutrition throughout the spring and summer, into the fall until the first hard frost.
  • When to Plant: Recommended planting time is Spring and Summer when night time temperatures are consistently above 65 degrees.


The fast-germinating Wild Game Sorghum, Peredovic Sunflowers, Dwarf Deer Corn, and Millet help protect the legume seedlings from early over-browse. After the Iron Clay Peas, Aeschynomene, Sunn Hemp and Alyce Clover are established, deer will utilize their tender buds all Summer until the first hard frost. Depending on your food plot location, this food plot seed mix can still be drawing deer well into the fall and winter hunting season.

Hancock's Spring & Summer Food Plot Seed Mix is scarified and pre-inoculated.

"I have used Hancock Seed products at my hunt clubs for over five years with dramatic results. My deer herd and turkey flocks are not only healthier but the numbers have dramatically increased with these products. The blended product that I get, gives me a food plot which has different nutrients maturing at different times during the growing season, thus giving me a continual food source for my wildlife. I like these products the best because they are geared towards our Florida soils and perform the best. The results speak for themselves."

Common aeschynomene has a high nutritive value and is very palatable to cattle and deer. It has been used in the cattle industry and for wildlife plantings for many years. Alyce Clover is a high protein legume that provides essential nutrients for antler growth during the summer months. Sunn Hemp provides as much as 2.5 tons per acre of green tonnage. with a maximum of 100 units of Nitrogen fixation per acre in as little as 60 days. It is also known to suppress nematodes. Dwarf Wildlife Corn seed is a excellent source of food plot nutrition and feed for deer and waterfowl. Japanese millet is great for dove fields, duck ponds, deer feed, pheasant feed, cover crops, bird seed, erosion control and much more. WGF Sorghum is great for spring and summer food plots for deer and game birds. WGF Sorghum is bird-resistant, which keeps migrating flocks of blackbirds from stripping it in late Summer. When compared to striped sunflower seeds, Peredovic black oil sunflower seeds are meatier and have a higher oil content, giving birds more nutrition and calories in every bite. Deer are highly fond of Iron Clay Cowpeas, which is fortunate because the Iron Clay Cowpeas provide a high level of protein that will help promote antler growth. Be sure to keep the new seed protected while it matures!


Mixture:

Hancock's Spring & Summer Food Plot Seed Mix contains the following. (Varieties are subject to change depending on availability) 

  • Cow peas
  • Peredovic Sunflower
  • WGF Sorghum
  • Sunn Hemp
  • Japanese Millet
  • Dwarf Deer Corn
  • Aeschynomene 

Rave Reviews

It's no secret why Hancock's Spring and Summer Food Plot Seed Mix is so popular. The answer is "because it works"! Here are a few of our favorite reviews from clients who have planted Hancock's Spring and Summer Food Plot Seed Mix:

"Delivery was timely and allowed me to get the seed in the ground right before a rain," says Robert L. "I planted this same seed last year and it did GREAT! Would definitely recommend buying from Hancock seed again, I did myself!"

"I like this mix of seeds, cowpeas grew up the sunn hemp and deer browsed on the vetch, cowpeas and started to eat the sunn hemp later in the summer," reports Alan C from the field. "It grew good in my clay soil, just planted again for this year. It ended up like a small thicket of browse with the sun hemp growing 7 feet tall."

"Only thing quicker than delivery is how fast it grows," writes Luke P. "So good that I am going to order another bag."

"The shipment was timely and complete," writes Dwight J. "The seed mixture when broadcasted was evenly distributed. The germination was quick and plants grew at a good pace. They were impressive. I will be a return customer for the fall mixture." Great point, Dwight! If you like what our Spring and Summer Food Plot Seed Mix does for the deer in your neighborhood, don't forget that we also offer Hancock's Fall and Winter Food Plot Seed Mix!

Remove all old vegetation to prepare a clean seedbed by means of a disc. Drag area to loosen and level any hard or uneven spots if necessary. Apply a slow-release starter fertilizer at the recommended rate of 250 lbs. per acre. Fertilize three times a year for best results.

Broadcast seed at recommended rate. Drag or roll lightly to cover the seed no more than 1/4 in. below surface. If you are overseeding an existing area, it is pertinent to mow existing grass low and incorporate seed 1/4 in. into soil for best results. Apply irrigation for approximately 30 minutes each evening until soil is damp, and germination has occurred. Irrigate newly-seeded areas every other day until the sprout reaches 6 in., then water recommended three times a week if needed.

Rave Reviews

It's no secret why Hancock's Spring and Summer Food Plot Seed Mix is so popular. The answer is "because it works"! Here are a few of our favorite reviews from clients who have planted Hancock's Spring and Summer Food Plot Seed Mix:

"Delivery was timely and allowed me to get the seed in the ground right before a rain," says Robert L. "I planted this same seed last year and it did GREAT! Would definitely recommend buying from Hancock seed again, I did myself!"

"I like this mix of seeds, cowpeas grew up the sunn hemp and deer browsed on the vetch, cowpeas and started to eat the sunn hemp later in the summer," reports Alan C from the field. "It grew good in my clay soil, just planted again for this year. It ended up like a small thicket of browse with the sun hemp growing 7 feet tall."

"Only thing quicker than delivery is how fast it grows," writes Luke P. "So good that I am going to order another bag."

"The shipment was timely and complete," writes Dwight J. "The seed mixture when broadcasted was evenly distributed. The germination was quick and plants grew at a good pace. They were impressive. I will be a return customer for the fall mixture." Great point, Dwight! If you like what our Spring and Summer Food Plot Seed Mix does for the deer in your neighborhood, don't forget that we also offer Hancock's Fall and Winter Food Plot Seed Mix!

Remove all old vegetation to prepare a clean seedbed by means of a disc. Drag area to loosen and level any hard or uneven spots if necessary. Apply a slow-release starter fertilizer at the recommended rate of 250 lbs. per acre. Fertilize three times a year for best results.

Broadcast seed at recommended rate. Drag or roll lightly to cover the seed no more than 1/4 in. below surface. If you are overseeding an existing area, it is pertinent to mow existing grass low and incorporate seed 1/4 in. into soil for best results. Apply irrigation for approximately 30 minutes each evening until soil is damp, and germination has occurred. Irrigate newly-seeded areas every other day until the sprout reaches 6 in., then water recommended three times a week if needed.

How you did?

Seed arrived promptly. 5 star. Seed contained a lot of dust, probably from being toward the end of the year.3 star. I just put it in the ground so we will see how well it germinates.
