Autumn Quick Plot is a fast growing blend for Late Summer or Early Fall

The winter peas, winter wheat, and forage brassicas in AQP will stay green long after a hard frost, providing a great draw late into the season.
Best planted mid to late August in areas that receive at least 4 hours of sunlight per day.
Seeding rate is 25 lb/acre.
8.5lb Bag Contains: Austrian Winter Peas, Winter Wheat, Winter Rye, Forage Radish, Forage Turnip, Forage Rape, and Common Vetch
Autumn Quick Plot Planting Tips
- Autumn Quick Plot is best planted from about mid-August to mid-September depending on your location. *Works well for early season archery so you should allow 3-4 weeks of growth before hunting.
- AQP prefers a heavier loam or light clay soil, but does well in most any soil with proper moisture.
- Condition the soil with a plow, disc, tiller or similar equipment to prepare a good seed bed about one month before you plan to plant. Allow field to green back up and then spray with RoundUp about two weeks before planting.
- When ready to plant, lightly disc or work the seed bed with a drag or chain link fence to loosen up the surface.
- Soil should be fertile with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5. If you are not sure of your soils fertility or pH, have your soil tested. Your local farm co-op or fertilizer dealer can usually help with this. *A good fertilizer recommendation is 200 lbs/acre of 19-19-19.
- Broadcast seed at 35-40lbs/acre. 30lbs/acre drilled.
- Drag the seed bed and cover the seed with 1⁄4 – 1⁄2 inch of top soil.
- Important Use a cultipacker, roller, or your ATV tires to pack the field to insure good seed/soil contact.
- Wait for rain! As with all plantings, the sooner it rains the better so watch your weather forecast and try to plant before a reasonable chance of rain.
- DOWNLOADABLE VERSION
- As with all food plots it is always easiest and cheapest to start with a weed free seed bed using glyphosate (Roundup). Begin soil preparation in mid-summer. Spray emerging vegetation 2 weeks before planting your AQP.
- Due to the late summer planting time of Autumn Quick Plot, weed control is easier than many blends and weed competition should not be much of an issue.
- Because of the difference in seed size care should be taken when setting your seeder so you don’t make the opening too large and run out your seed too fast.
- You will get some re-growth in early Spring to benefit your deer herd. It will tend to mature quickly though and can either be mowed down or plowed under for “green fertilizer” to help build up your soil.

Autumn Quick Plot is by far my favorite seed to plant for Whitetail Deer. The blend of Cereal Grains, Peas and Brassicas is easy to spread evenly with my EarthWay shoulder broadcaster. I can spread it to the exact amount needed per the food plot size listed on the bag, this is very important as you will get the most out of each plant as they will not be overcrowded or be too thin and allow weeds to take over. The seed can be planted from August 1st all the way to the end of September for my area, so it’s gives me a wide window of opportunity to plant before a rain or wait for the best stretch of weather. It can also give you redemption if one of your earlier plots you planted failed, and you need a “Quick Plot” to hunt over for the fall. Best of all this blend is very attractive to Deer, early on they will bury their head in the brassica leaves and nibble on the peas and cereal grains. Once you get a frost the deer will eat the sugar sweetened brassica leaves, then they will munch on the rest of the forage and eventually dig up the bulbs and eat them. My 2019 Autumn Quick plot stayed green long into the winter and held the deer on my property allowing me to shoot a Ten Point Buck. I highly recommend this seed to anyone, but especially to People new to planting food plots because it is easy to be successful with..
