Brood Magnet Seed
The WMT Brood Magnet Seed Mix is designed specifically to provide broods of pheasant & quail exactly what they need - insects and protection. It provides an ideal canopy of cover, while also keeping the ground relatively bare to allow chicks to move about freely and chase insects. Several studies have proven that areas interseeded with these seeds increases invertebrates (insect) numbers by an amazing 200 to 500%! Since the diet of young birds consist of 90% insects because of the high protein content, having a brooding area is critical for survival!
Available in a 25 lb bag.
WMT’s Brood Magnet Seed Mix is planted in the fall or spring and grows to maturity the first season. After the initial planting, it will provide several years of benefit. After year 3 just lightly disk the area and the early successional nature of the seeds will lead to new growth.
