Want to plant in a food plot in poorer soil and/or harsh conditions?
The result of years of research and development, Imperial Whitetail Extreme is a seed blend that will enable you to plant a successful food plot in tough soil as well as in harsh conditions. Imperial Whitetail Extreme excels with a minimum of 15 inches of rainfall a year and is cold and heat tolerant, making Extreme an excellent choice for ground that might otherwise be less-productive.
Note: Neutral pH soils and higher annual rainfall can produce even better performance.

I manage about 90 acres in Southwest Georgia with approximately 4-5 acres in food plots. In 2011, I contacted Whitetail Institute because we had been going through a series of intense droughts and everything I was planting was dying due to lack of rain and the intense heat down here. The representative I talked to said that they had developed Imperial Whitetail Extreme for exactly those kinds of conditions and that I should plant that. He said that once it got established it was extremely tolerant of all conditions and that it really worked. I'll admit to being a little doubtful, as it was hard for me to picture anything surviving very well in such hard conditions. I ordered 50 lbs of the stuff and waited until October, with better rain and less heat, to plant the stuff. With minimal amount of delay, it came up and I had good activity in the plots of Imperial Whitetail Extreme.
The real test came the next summer, when it again got hot and dry. Southwest Georgia is extremely hot and often subject to dry periods. All I can tell you is that the Imperial Whitetail Extreme not only survived, it thrived on my property. I've had plots in this stuff for 3 years now, and it does great ALL year round. I only cut it and periodically fertilize it and the stuff is just amazing. It gives me a huge advantage on the hunters around me because there is ALWAYS a food source on my property and the deer eat that stuff all year round. Both of my boys killed their first deer in a Whitetail Extreme food plot, and the quality of my deer has improved steadily over time both in size and in antler growth. I keep cameras on my biggest Imperial Whitetail Extreme plot all year round and use it to keep a census of the bucks using my property. Nothing I have ever tried has given me the steady results that this product has and nothing has lasted nearly this long. The stuff is just almost indestructible once you get it started and its available during periods when almost nothing else is. The deer browse it down to almost nothing, and yet it comes back every single year. It's just a great product and I'd highly recommend it to anybody who struggles to grow and maintain food plots. I've never seen anything like it.
