Only tried it once so far, and my timing was terrible.  Things got dry for quite a few weeks and I never got it to take hold so broke the ground up again & started over with some whitetail oats.  Would still like to give Fusion a try again, so keep us posted on yours.

Had good luck with the Fusion. We planted an acre and it was dry early but as soon as the rains got a little more consistent, it jumped up and the deer we're in it almost every time we hunted the plot. No shooters but they are rare around here. It's much better than a few years ago but we're looking for some 140-150" deer.

I also think I may have a soil pH issue. Old hay field that hasn't been limed in years. The clover and chicory in the Fusion did well but I'm sending in a soil sample to be sure. First time in years I haven't soil tested before planting. Will report back when the report gets back.

Following up. I had my soil tested, pH was a little low. 5.9. Hit the plot in early January with about 700lbs of pell lime and the plants are doing better, much better. Now, just waiting on spring and some warmer weather. I have always done a lab test on my plots but this one I skipped for some reason. Never again.

I've read a few times that pell lime is only good for a year. make sure to get some ag lime. I get several years before I need to redo my ag lime. I have heavy loam soil so it retains for awhile

good luck

I went ahead and put down some Fusion on three locations while it was still 65 degrees and raining quite a bit.  Now, we're getting some snow flakes and colder temps at night but still in 40's during the day.  I hope they do well.                             %^$^

Yari,

According to the WTI Planting dates, I could plant between February 1 - April 15th.  It has been in the mid 60's when I went ahead and planted last week.  Of course we received some snow flakes over the weekend, but melted fairly quickly.  We live in the SE part of KY and 10 miles south is Tennessee border.

So, HM, the Fusion I put down last week will not grow?  What about when seeds are Frost seeded?

it will all depend on weather. if it gets warm enough for the seeds to sprout, and then turns freezing, the little sprouts may die...  Its hard to frost seed in KY because our winters are so erratic. it may come up or it may come up spotty. If it is spotty, just over seed the bad spots this spring.

In this area, we generally wait until about the end of feb to plant. Sometimes a little into March
