Check out what growers and hunters are saying about Monty’s products…

“I have a small farm in North Central Kentucky which is managed for wildlife. We primarily focus on turkeys, but we also hunt deer. Our clover fields and food plots have really suffered from the drought cycles that we have experienced over the last couple of years. We frost-seeded clover and other legumes late this winter to help re-invigorate our plots. Grass was a big problem so we sprayed a grass herbicide in conjunction with a heavy dose of Rackvantage in order to invigorate the tender legumes and clovers. The results were fantastic. We have the best food plots that we have had in years, and our plots are drawing a lot more wildlife because of the nutritional values that the Rackvantage enhanced. I would strongly recommend Rackvantage to any wildlife manager who wants to increase the food value of their plots.”

“I have tried for several years to establish a decent clover field in Henry County, Kentucky. I took a soil sample and found problems with the soil, but because of inaccessibility to large trucks, I was unable to get enough Ag Lime to the field. I started using Rackvantage last spring and made 3 applications during the growing season. Now I not only have the best clover field that I have ever had, it is so good that it is producing high quality hay, if I could just get my equipment to the field to harvest. I have integrated Rackvantage into my management plans on all of my deer and dove plots as a result of the problems that it solved in my clover field.”

Neil Kaufman farms in Caldwell and Webster counties in Western Kentucky and was growing Japanese Millet for deer and ducks. Neil used Rackvantage on his Japanese Millet last fall (2012) and had great results. He applied the product in several different ways. He sprayed it along the edge of the fields and also applied it in an east to west direction, as well as north to south. Deer and birds overwhelmed the plots during the vegetative stage of the plants. After application Neil noticed that the treated areas were much greener and 50% taller than the untreated areas. The entire plot had conventional fertilizer applied.“Seed production really blew me away with 3 times the amount of production. The plant must absorb tremendous amounts of nitrogen, because it greened up so much faster than the untreated areas of the field. Within 3 days I’ve seen the results!” Neil has been farming for over 55 years and farms several thousand acres in Western Kentucky. He is also is an avid wildlife photographer. Neil has won several awards including: “Private Contribution to Ducks Unlimited”, “Tree Reforestation”, and “Nature Photography.”

“After years of testing, we are pleased to introduce Rackvantage! “We have seen excellent results with Rackvantage and I personally use it on all my plots.”

“I have 500 acres in Harrison Co., IN and Hancock Co., KY which are primarily managed for wildlife (8 food plots in all). One of my plots is a 3 acre alfalfa and orchard grass mixture. This spring there was weevil damage that resulted in a 25% leaf loss. I added 2 quarts of Rackvantage when I sprayed this field with insecticide. Leaf regeneration was close to 100% and the orchard grass production doubled. In the past 3 years this field has yielded 5,000 lbs per acre, and after spraying with Rackvantage, it jumped to 9,000 lbs per acre. My neighbor, who baled the field and does a lot of custom baling, said it was the best field he has seen all year despite the weevil infestation. After the experimentation and results that I saw on my alfalfa field, I am looking forward to the results I expect to see on all of my food plots.”

“Rackvantage makes a difference, a BIG difference. In our 12 year history of growing clover food plots for wild game (mostly deer and turkey) we have experienced poor to good results but never great results. We had the soils tested and made all the recommended improvements including lime applications to adjust the pH but the results were at best, just good. The Rackvantage product changed that in just one season. To say I have been pleased with the results would be a major understatement, I am blown away with the difference this product has made in such a short time. We first tested it in two different areas that total approximately 3 acres. Both of these three year old plots had clover in them but were in need of total renovation. By simply applying Rackvantage as recommended, the plots were transformed into what we now refer to as our “super plots. Every aspect of the clover in these plots is vastly improved including its size and thickness. The leaves are two times the size of what I am used to and the stem growth is unreal. We literally have clover that is knee high. I would estimate that the overall yield of clover in these areas is 2-3 times what it was in the past. We have a high density of deer and in previous years they would keep the clover eaten down almost to the ground, now they can’t eat it all!”
> Bill Bellis, Triple B Farm, Port Royal, Kentucky
“I sprayed 9 acres of soybeans with Rackvantage and was totally blown away with what I saw. The deer completely demolished the field to the point that it had to be replanted. Rackvantage increased the palatability of the plant. I did not spray the field next to it, and the deer did not touch it!
> Todd Carter, LaGrange,Kentucky. Farmer/Wildlife Manager, Evolution Land Management
“As a farmer, I was skeptical until it was proven to me on my own farm. My food plots have healthier plants, more color, bigger roots and stalks, and double to triple head size on sunflowers that were sprayed with Rackvantage Food Plot Enhancer compared to untreated sunflowers. I would definitely recommend Rackvantage to anyone growing food plots.”

“Here at Jackson Purchase Outfitters, we used Rackvantage on our 2012 food plots; even in drought conditions, our food plots produced tons of forage using Food Plot Enhancer. Awesome product.”
