The best varieties of the hottest plant in food plots. Tecomate® Champion Chicory has been the industry go-to for years due to its overall quality, attraction, production and nutrition. As one of the healthiest plants in the food plot world it provides high protein forage that is great for antler growth, improved digestion and strengthens a deer’s immune system. This champion can grow in almost any soil type. Produces high-quality, year-round forage for 3 to 5 years. Great as a standalone or blends well with other seeds, especially Tecomate® King Ladino White Clover or Tecomate® Trophy Grazer Forage Oats.
CHICORY lasts 2 to 5 years and is a beneficial forb that deer instinctively crave. We started using chicory in our mixtures over 10 years ago and introduced the wildlife world to the benefits of chicory as a food plot component. This highly digestible forb provides protein and energy to the diet while stimulating the rumen to work more efficiently. Chicory is adapted to most regions of the US. It has a deep tap root that contains stored carbohydrates which allow the plant to go dormant during extreme winter or summer stresses. Chicory is also very drought tolerant. The root contains many benefits that aid in alleviating digestive disorders. Deer will frequent chicory plots when overfeeding on corn and acorn crops. Chicory can be planted as a monostand or in combination with other species. Tecomate has an extensive chicory research program with multiple varieties to determine which are the most productive and desirable. We have now taken it one step further to include our proprietary Yellow Jacket seed coating containing Zeba. Chicory is ideal for use in all zones.

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.

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.
