The best all-around warm season seed mix on the market for deer plus a range of wildlife. Contains Tecomate® Lablab for antlergrowing/fawning nutrition plus some of the most nutritious and
preferred peas and beans in the world including our own vining cowpeas. Premium milo/sorghum and sunflowers act as a screen for peas and beans during the first weeks of growth producing large
seeds favored by deer. This blend is less vulnerable to grazing pressure than single cultivars. Lablab Plus also provides food and cover for game birds.
LABLAB PLUS is an ingenious mixture of Lablab beans, Ebony peas and White Grain Milo and offers the “triple threat” of whitetail nutrition: high protein, fat and carbohydrates. Lablab is a proven, stand alone summer annual food plot for the most hot and arid of growing conditions. However, as the Tecomate Seed business evolved we put our agronomist to work on developing a mixture that could be established in smaller plots. White Grain Milo provides a quick establishing shelter and trellising plant for the Lablab and Ebony plants. The hybrid grain heads provide a high energy feed for game birds and deer once they reach maturity. The Ebony (black-seeded pea, proprietary to Tecomate) is an indeterminate seeder, meaning it produces bushels of highly desirable and nutritious peas while it continues to produce tons of high quality forage. Ebony has also been noted to establish quicker in cooler soil temperatures than Lablab, which aids in plant protection. This plot may be left standing throughout the fall to provide nutrition and attraction in the bow and rifle seasons. Ideal for zones 3 & 4.

PLANTING A FOOD PLOT - SUCCESS, ONE STEP AT A TIME
Welcome to the first fork in the road. A lot of folks are planting food plots these days; some are experienced, some are not. At Tecomate, we want to do everything possible to make sure that regardless of your experience you take the right steps to success. If you are a beginner foodplotter or have limited equipment please look at Level 1. If you have planted food plots before and have farming equipment, we recommend reading Level 2 which is at the bottom.
Which Deer Food Plot Level Are You At?
Level 1: If you have limited equipment, are new to food plot planting or are considering “giving it a try”, follow this path.
Level 2: If you have access to farming equipment and a basic knowledge of food plot planting, follow this path.
Regional food plot seed products offer best results.
Tecomate Seed makes product recommendations based specifically on the region where they are best adapted (see planting zone map below). Recognizing that areas of the country differ in environmental conditions is only one piece of the puzzle. Regional Tecomate agronomists are an integral part of the sales effort.
The Tecomate Zone Map is a valuable tool when planning deer, turkey, and game-bird food plots. Tecomate recommendations are based on extensive research and quantified results in specific zones. Further, each recommended product is regionally blended using seeds that are best suited for the climate and rainfall in that area.
