We've bred our Eagle Seed Forage soybeans to be better than other foods plot crops and
other soybeans. Eagle Forage Soybeans:

  • Contain more protein than other food plot crops.  Eagle Forage Soybeans provide up
    to 42% leaf protein, that's 8-12% more than a regular soybean like those used by our
    competitors (A&L Labs, 2011, Dr. Rebecca Atkinson published research.  2012
    Brandywine Hunting Club, Independent lab and verified by club manager).

  • more palatable than other food plots and other soybean varieties (Noble Fdn, 2008).

  • Stay green and attractive to deer longer.  More time green, means more leaf protein
    and less shattering.  You couple that with the amazing seed yield and you can have
    up to 10.5 months of food from one planting.  

  • Provide up to 10 tons of food per acre, that's 2 to 5 times as much food as a regular
    soybean.  With our soybeans, you spend the same amount on fertilizer, spraying, etc
    (Southern Illinois University, 2009, 2010) but end up with more food that is more
    palatable and provides more protein. For soybeans, browse tolerance is #1 breeding
    objective.  Normal soybeans and our competitor's beans often get wiped out.  

  • Provide more nodes, more branches, more food.

  • Produces up to 50 bushels of seed, even in drought conditions (Large Lad; R. Small
    Farm, KS 2012; 36 bu dryland Alabama State Yield Trial, 2009).
      - available in RR , RR2,  and conventional varieties

  • more browse and drought tolerant (Purdue, 2012).
This picture outlines the major problems with using
ag-type soybeans for deer or cattle grazing.  The green
forage soybeans are still palatable and attractive to deer
for months longer.  Longer maturing green soybeans
provide more protein by remaining palatable for  those
extra months. Our forage soybean also produces much
more food using the same dollar value of fertilizer and
other inputs.

Shattering? The competitors dry, early beans are
shattering.  Beans that remain greener longer don't
shatter as easily.  Our forage beans are proven to hold
their seed for up to a year after planting (BHR, 2012).  
EAGLE FORAGE soybeans can put on more
38 nodes per plant, while other
soybeans can produce only 14 to 20  per

Our forage varieties, pictured left, were
developed to
contain more branches, leaves,
roots, and nodes, which means more food
for your deer or cattle herd

Additional nodes, leaves, branches, and
height allows the plant to
withstand heavy

Larger roots are also an advantage in poorer
soils, and make our plants more drought

With larger roots, the Eagle Seed Forage
Soybeans have the ability to grow in rocky,
sandy soils in both higher and lower than
ideal pH environments.
Advantage: Eagle Seed Forage soybeans.
Make sure you have food at critical times
when your deer or cattle herd need it

"Deer browse the high protein stems and leaves throughout
the summer months.  The beans serve as a high protein
energy food in the winter months.
 Simply put, Eagle products
are the best value for your food plot dollar, and are the best at
improving your deer herd, deer health, body  weight and
antlers." Dr. Grant Woods, Growingdeer.tv
