Food Plot Seed

Rooster Booster

  • Developed specifically for game birds
  • Repels sparrows and blackbirds during growth
  • Strong stalk and head

    Rooster Booster is specifically developed to accommodate upland birds (quail, turkey, pheasant, and prairie chickens) and migratory birds (ducks, geese, and doves).  The grain offers a good fall and winter food source, as well as a good covered habitat.  Rooster Booster is an early maturity grain sorghum that blooms about 45-50 days after planting.  Rooster booster is a heavy grain producer. Unlike the conventional grain hybrids, Rooster Booster grain sorghum imparts a bitter taste to predatory birds (sparrows, blackbirds, starling, etc.) during milk and dough stages of grain development.  The bitter taste disappears with maturity.  When mature, this grain sorghum is very palatable to wild game birds during the fall and winter months.  The red-brown pericarp outer layer of the seed serves as a mold and rotting repellant during long exposure to cold and wet winter condition.  The crop residue provides an excellent cover for birds while proving non-weathering food source as well.
