A traditional mixture of species specially selected for their feed and cover qualities

  • Quinoa produces seed heads at the top of the stem, which shed steadily throughout the game season
  • Quinoa seed is a highly palatable source of high protein feed
  • Kale gives a winter hardy canopy, much loved by pheasants
  • The kale is treated with Cruiser which provides protection from flee beetle attack
  • Sow at 3kg/acre

WHY USE GAME COVER

  • Bird habitats can vary from entirely feed to totally cover, from single year crops to semi permanent grass based covers, offer feed, cover or both 
  • Game cover crops provide a wide range provide habitat for game and farmland birds

 

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION

It may be advisable to have your soil analysed and ask one of our specialists to visit your shoot. To encourage wild UK birds it’s best to consider a broad range of seed bearing crops.


Establishing a mix takes time and but it’s worth the effort. Ask the farmer/landowner about fertilizers, previous crops and soil types.


Use farmyard manure wherever possible – especially on set-aside land.
