LabLab is a high protein summer annual legume ideal for wildlife food plots. Deer especially love the large green leaves as they grow up the stalks of forage sorghum, millet, sorghum sudangrass or corn when planted together.
TYPE: Summer annual legume
ADAPTATION: From Eastern Texas and Oklahoma across the South to the Atlantic coast and north to Canada. In the Pacific Northwest, and in river valleys and irrigated pastures of the intermountain region.
USES: LabLab grows well with sorghum, millet and corn. Its viney growth habit allows it to climb other taller plants. Excellent for silage or grazing.
BENEFITS: LabLab is extremely drought tolerant, and its leaves remain green through dry periods, continuing to attract wildlife. LabLab will produce abundant forage throughout the summer until first frost in the fall.
NUTRITION: With a protein range between 21% and 28%, LabLab is a high quality forage choice for summer food plots during a time when antler and fawn development are critical.
