This seed blend has been in the testing stage for several years after numerous requests from our customers for a soil-builder blend and is now ready to be released as a 2022 pilot program. This seed blend was designed to be planted as early in the spring as possible to get ahead of weed competition and to build up the soil in your plots. Soil-Charge is the perfect seed blend to plant ahead of fall-planted blends like Deadly Dozen, Harvest Salad and Plot Topper.
Contains a blend of specific varieties of Barley, Red Clover, Rape, and Peas.
Soil-Charge does 3 important things in your plots –
- It serves as a weed-suppressor to keep weeds down in your plot as you wait for the proper planting time for those fall-planted seed blends.
- It adds important nutrients to your plots such as nitrogen and organic matter.
- It provides a food source for your deer and other wildlife during the spring and summer months, getting them accustomed to feeding in your plots ahead of planting your fall seed blends.
To plant Soil-Charge you can work the ground and broadcast the seed and then drag or cultipack the seed into the ground or you can frost-seed by simply broadcasting the seed onto the ground 30 days prior to spring warm up as long as the seed can make good contact with bare soil. Soil-Charge comes in a 45# bag which is enough for 1 acre. It is better to plant Soil-Charge a little heavy than too light as it is critical to have plenty of plants per square/foot to control weeds. Soil-Charge includes barley, red clover, peas and rape.
A couple of weeks before planting your fall seed blend into the plot, spray the Soil-Charge plot with glyphosate to kill all the vegetation. You can then either no-till drill the fall blend into the plot of work the soil and broadcast the fall blend.
About Real Worlds “Pilot Program”
Real World Wildlife Products is continually testing new products to bring to market. Honestly, most of those potential new products never make it past our own farms. When we do find a product that shows merit on our own farms we then test in on partner properties around the country for feedback. If that feedback is positive we then move the potential new product into our “pilot program”. At this stage we offer a limited amount of the product for sale to our valued customers for feedback from across an even bigger geographic area. It is only after a product has passed this final test that we will introduce it into our product lineup. We want to do everything possible to ensure that any product wearing the Real World brand has been properly vetted and proven through various levels of testing.
