Have had great luck in the past planting these but the place I bought them no longer has them on line. I like to plant these in a rotation to clean up a field good before over seeding it with new clover. Anyone have a line on these?

The deer in my area like RR sugar beets like nothing else! But I didn't think they could be bought by us little food plot farmers. I've always had to get a handful here and there from farmer friends........feels like I'm getting them on the black market and am involved in illegal activity.

Agree with Offhntn-unless you are a member of the beet cooperative, they are near impossible to buy.

I know how you feel, OFFHNTN! I contemplated waiting until nightfall before crossing state lines with mine! ;-)

I bought a small bag of them several years ago from a vendor at the Iowa Deer Classic, but that was very short lived. Monsatan shut that down very quickly. Got some from a friend of a friend in Minnesota the following year. The deer absolutely loved them, but, IMO, they are a bigger PITA than their advantages. They can be very finicky to grow to start with and, with the RR resistant water hemp issues here in Iowa, I gave up on trying to score any more of them, and went with the turnips, radish and rape mix instead.

Don't beets have to irrigated to any good growth out of them?

Never had to irrigate them in north east Wisconsin but they are hard on fertilizer. The tonnage of forage is well worth it
