Chufa for Turkeys

9 posts in this topic

I am thinking of planting some Chufa in one of our food plots for turkeys. Anyone try this? If so what did you find good and bad about it. I'm a little afraid of trying it because I have read it grows a little better in warmer climates. If you have used it what kind of success have you had? Any info will be appreciated.

I tried it last year.

I was not impressed at all with it. I should add, that I did not do a soil test to confirm what I was dealing with, so I have to blame myself a little I think.

With that said though, I am gonna disc it up, and go with my other blends.

Icehawk,

I saw 7 nice gobblers on your place yesterday afternoon in the rain. Things are looking good for you guys. When do you hunt?

Icehawk - you may be right about the climate - in Alabama the first year we planted Chufa the birds went wild and dug most of it out of the plots. Obviously, a big difference in average temps, but the stuff really works down there.

Icehawk, can I hunt on your land as well?! Better bring your hipboots, all this rain is not helping matters much. I ordered the seed from the Co-op, and brought in the soil for the PH test. I ordered Ladino Clover, Chickory, Dwarf Essex Rape, Rye, I already have the soybeans, and some Imperial Clover left from last year. No need to worry about the Chufa.

You better get one of those toms, because when dad and I our done there will be one less for sure.

See the post under "Hunting". According to the article this plant is a noxious weed and illeagle in some areas.

Five-Bucks Thanks for the heads-up on the article on Chufa. It looks like I will be going with other things in our food plots.
