Chufas Food Plot Seed (Cyperus esculentus)

Chufas are great for Turkey, Deer and other wildlife. Plant 25-50 lbs. - per acre

Chufas are a bunch grass with a peanut like underground nut - used for food plots of deer, turkey, hogs and wild hogs. This legume is very similar to peanuts, if you have ever seen hogs rooting peanuts, they go after chufas the same way. Plant in spring through summer. Wildlife digs up the chufas once they mature.

Chufas are perennial sedges that are one of the most popular foods for wild turkeys. Chufa plants have underground tubers, which are part of the plant that turkeys eat. One chufas tuber will produce a plant that can grow to 15-75 tubers when mature. Turkeys find the tubers by scratching them from just under the surface of the ground. The tubers are high in protein and fat, which makes them especially nutritious for wild turkeys. Chufa can also make an excellent food source for other wildlife including deer and ducks.

Chufa plants grow well in the southern half of the US from Northern California across to Southern Iowa and even Southern Pennsylvania. Chufa plants grow in a variety of soil, but perform best on well-drained, sandy or loamy soils. Clay soils can support chufa. When growing in clay soils, lightly turn the soil in the fall to expose the tubers. This practice can be done periodically to extend the food supply into winter and early spring. Simply plow several strips twice a month until the entire field has been plowed. Generally, chufa will grow anywhere that corn can be successfully grown.

4 of 5 Chufa Seed January 8, 2014
Reviewer: Brandon Bishop from Arlington, TN United States  
Seed arrived as expected and on time.. UPS tracking was great. However..didn't give 5 stars because the box was split wide open on my front porch. Seed bag was fine.. No damage to the actual bag. I'm sure it's tough to ship that type of merchandise. I'm satisfied with the overall experience. Will more than likely use again.
