yes

either - or

Both companies have spent Millions developing and promoting their products -
Its not as simple as "one is better than the other".

for $50-100 you can try them side by side and make your own determinations for your soil.
The seed cost, is minimal compared to the rest of it all.

I figure I have close to $300 per year in a 1 acre food plot with the seed being about $50 of it, so farmhunter is right.

I agree. Try them side by side in order to see what grows the best and which one the deer prefer. I prefer the Imperial Whitetail products especially their Clover. I planted some in 2002 and it is still coming back.

ORIGINAL: allmightyhunter13 Bio logic or Imperial Whitetail?
Neither.

Who do they each buy their seeds from? Try to plant the same type of seed yourself, without the retail brandname attached.

look at teh back of the package. It will tell you exactly what type of seed is in the bag and exactly what percentage. Go to a coop and buy the seed and some inocculate.

I've used BioLogic for 2 years now and have been satisfied, but not overly impressed. I've found the deer feed more in the generic crop (beans, corn, sorghum, clovers) more so than the specialty in the later part of the season. If you do end up doing both side by side, I would be interested to know which one had more attractiveness to the deer... Maybe a good research opportunity in the making.
