I've never planted it but am sure it will grow fine and draw deer if the soil is well prepared. From and economical perspective though, you're paying for a lot of marketing and a flashy bag. The constituents of the blend are pretty cheap and readily available at your local co-op.

I am not sure what kind of seeds are in BioMass, but like FootballHunter and Boll Weevil said, you can get the individual seeds at the co-op for way cheaper. Go look at a back of Biomass and read what kind of seed is in it, then go to co-op and buy whatever kind of seed is in biomass. Then you have good ole home made biomass.

Guys I tried that this spring with some white clover from the co-op abd I have been very disappointed. I have sewed white and crimson clover several times before and have had it germinate well and sometimes not so well. So seems to me that its a gamble to buy seeds from the co-op for my food plots. I don't know if my seed was old or what but I got very little germination. That said I have never had a problem with biologic or whitetail institute seed germinating and growing well. Only problem is its expensive!

Timberjack,SS may explain more,but white clover takes longer to establish than red.Or you may have gotten a bad batch,rain washed some away,turkeys got some of it,etc.

Spring planted clover is a big gamble, you definitely likely wouldnt see much this year. Did you have a properly prepared planting location? Lime, Fert, sunlight, etc? And I seem to remember that you were convinced with planting white dutch. Thats the same clover you find in lawns, not really a premium forage variety. There can be batches that have low germ rates, but that is highly unlikely, just as likely with one brand over another. The reason people see a quick reaction of WI clover is because they load it with very cheap annual clover that will come on strong but not last.....just look at the seed label.

Thanks for the reply. I know one time I did not plant in a well prepared seed bed and another time it might have been a bad batch. And I this year I planted in spring. Plus all the rain we have had the last few weeks didn't help. I will try again this fall. Many Thanks!!!!
