Looking for a spring/summer annual that will deliver high protein tonnage and handle heavy grazing?
Imperial Whitetail PowerPlant is a blend of specially selected annuals that’s specifically designed to provide deer with lots of protein during the spring and summer. PowerPlant can withstand grazing better than other bean and pea plantings. In fact, once PowerPlant establishes, it can even continue to grow as deer feed on it. At the heart of PowerPlant are vining forage soybean and peas that don’t get stemmy like agricultural soybeans can. PowerPlant also includes Sunn Hemp and small amounts of sunflowers to act as a lattice for the vining legumes to climb and maximize production instead of growing along the ground.
PowerPlant is also Arrest MAX™ approved! Whitetail Institute Arrest MAX grass herbicide can be used to control labeled grasses in PowerPlant stands.

Considering the fact that this is the first year of planting in this particular spot, and that it is the first time I have planted Power Plant, I am optimistic of the progress of my plot. With a couple more timely rains, it should grow into the food plot I hope it will be. Using the WI soil test system has proven to be the best first step. I hope to be able to improve my rating to 5 after deer season

I mentioned in a No Plow review that I was raised on my grandpa’s farm (soybeans and corn), so I’m no stranger to the agricultural industry. During my research on WI’s PowerPlant, I noticed WI’s claim about PowerPlant’s regeneration/continued growth after deer grazing. I reflected back on my farming experience and took that claim with a grain of salt. However, I felt that I had to try PowerPlant.
About a month or so after planting PowerPlant, the deer nibbled a patch of the young growth down to bare stems (no leaves, just stems sticking out of the ground). Based on my experience, agricultural soybeans would have died at that point. So, I took some pictures, sent them to WI, and called WI to discuss the situation (great staff at WI, by the way). After a couple weeks, I checked that same patch of the PowerPlant and then my jaw hit the soil. What used to look like toothpicks sticking out of the ground had regenerated into soybeans… I stood in complete disbelief as I gazed at my soybeans.
WI… you guys are right… PowerPlant regenerates/continues to grow after deer grazing!!!
Thank you Whitetail Institute!

I’ve used Whitetail Institute products for many years. I have two plots of Imperial Whitetail Clover, Alfa Rack and Power Plant. I have heavy use out of all my WI products however Power Plant is by far my favorite. In my area deer will bed down, and move around all day to eat. I might try mowing shooting lanes as all my experiments with WI products have been a huge success with proper preparation and maintenance.

Sprouted in 5 or 6 days, at 10 days the deer in my piece of heaven have quadrupled! I just hope they let it grow a bit for later consumption.
