Sugar Beets have recently become a popular new addition to food plots for deer. Sugar beets are a good “addition” to your food plot not a single source food plot. Remember deer are browsers and naturally enjoy variety in the wild and a food plot should provide variety. In the fall food plot add sugar beets to your greens mixture and in the summer food plot add sugar beets to the spring summer planting. Sugar beets have been commercially grown for sugar production for many, many years but only recently been used as an addition to food plots.
