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.

I've been using the PowerPlant for several years and the product is great. I made several mistakes the first couple seasons. Didn't soil test and needed lime. Planted too early and the plot was thin. Both of these problems were my fault. Finally called and talked with a consultant at your office and he got me on the right track. Soil tested and waited until the soil was warmer and it took off. The plot was infested with deer but it held up well to the pressure. If anyone who reads this hasn't tried Powerplant will get the soil pH right and plant it, they will be impressed. Awesome product. This and Pure Attraction are my personal favorites. Also like the Ambush but it was sold out last August. I've already prebooked it for this year. 2 acres worth. It was a hit with our deer.

Planted PowerPlant last spring on a buddy's recommendation. The field is about 1.5 acres with above average deer numbers. The plot developed quickly and I sprayed the Arrest herbicide as soon as I saw the grass coming up. That was the key. I had plants over 6' tall and trails running through it in every direction. The deer actually lived in it all summer. I have tried beans and peas for several years with less than ideal results. Kudos to WI for coming up with something that works like it's advertised to work. Rare in the world we live in. We overseeded the plot with WinterGreens in mid August and as the PowerPlant played out the WinterGreens came on strong. I had more deer photos in this plot that any of our other 8 plots. We will be planted more next spring. Good work Whitetail Ins.

Hope all is well for 2017... just wanted to check and see about another pallet of power plant for this year? Unbelievable at the amount of forage it produced for us last year!!!!

I planted Power Plant next to a seed mixture that I had always planted from a local seed supplier. The results were literally unbelievable. There was a minimum of 10-1 deer ratio in the Power Plant compared to the other mixture.

Good product. Grew quick. Killed the grass with the Arrest herbicide and the plot took off. The plot was 5-1/2' tall with trails in it everywhere. Good mix of forages and the deer bed in it.
