Wild Game Maize (Teosinte) Seed – 50 lb

Teosinte is a perennial grain that is an outstanding wild game bird feed. The plant grows on a stalk that is similar to corn, and produces “ears” as well. The teosinte kernel is much harder than corn and does not attach itself to a cob, but rather grows in a linear configuration within the ear. As the plant matures the kernels are released by wind action, wildlife movement and any other force that disturbs the stalk. The kernels are not disbursed all at once, but gradually making teosinte an excellent food source for up to six weeks. The stalks also provide ground cover for quail, pheasants, grouse and other upland species, as well as an ideal bedding area for deer. A popular application for teosinte is planting in strips or as a border in larger food plots, or along fence rows, fire lanes and utility easements.
