Welcome the thatch creator. Often times the best plantings start off in the fall. We have created this high carbon to nitrogen planting to follow our Nitro-Boost! Carbon load is made up of a higher C:N ratio to help us create and carry that thatch through the following Spring.

This thatch acts as a weed barrier, slow-release fertilizer (from the nutrients the plants sequestered during the growing season), and increases the efficacy of moisture retention.

Carbon load is not just high carbon to nitrogen plants, this is a very diverse mix of 14+ species. We have balanced our mix, exactly to meet our needs and take advantage of the free N that we have scavenged and fixed from our Nitro-Boost planting. By planting Nitro-Boost and Carbon load in subsequent plantings we are increasing the likelihood of soil aggregation forming, as well as increasing our soil microbe populations. As we increase our fungal and biological populations in the soil, through natural diverse mixes like Nitro-Boost and Carbon Load – we further impact the efficacy of our soils potential and highly reduce our need, if not eliminate our need for synthetic fertilizers.

Carbon Load is a fantastic mix that will feed microbes to deer all year round. We strongly suggest following Carbon Load in the Spring with Nitro-Boost to further energize our soils. However, Carbon load is such a well-rounded mix – it can be planted in the fall and left to grow until the next fall when spraying, mowing or crimping can terminate the crop. If performing the latter – just be cognizant of Turkey and fawns laying in it as it matures, and it will head out at over 5ft tall and be a thick area for bedding and eating.

    Too early to tell how the seed will do(I will also play a part in that – LOL), but Fast shipment and packed well. Looking forward to planting in Northern WI in a few weeks.
