There is magic in Lablab. After years of study, testing and growing giant bucks, Lablab remains the best warm-season source of protein, antler-growing phosphorus and key nutrients we have ever found. Nothing is capable of delivering more and better nutrition during the spring through early fall antler-growing/fawning period. Lablab has been scientifically proven to add an unprecedented 20 to 40 inches of antler and pounds of weight to mature bucks.
These phenomenal results are due to its extraordinary protein (up to 38%) and phosphorous levels, ideal Ca/P ratio and superb palatability and digestibility. Lablab is essentially a super cowpea, only far more nutritious, preferred and productive (capable of producing over 10,000 pounds/acre). Plus, it’s drought, disease and insect resistant. And, deer vote their preference for Lablab over other summer forages by literally walking through the untouched competition, including cowpeas and soybeans, to eagerly feed on Lablab. Like all dicotyledonous legumes, such as cowpeas, soybeans, etc.,
Lablab Food Plot can be adversely affected by heavy grazing during the first three of four weeks after coming up. This vulnerability can be overcome either by planting enough acreage to spread out early grazing pressure or by temporarily fencing off the young plants. Once the plants grow into the multi-leafed stage, they can withstand the heaviest grazing pressure and continue to flourish.
