Indiana Subsidy Offer Spring 2013
Dear Indiana Member:
The Indiana State Chapter Board of Directors is pleased to offer its members the opportunity to purchase seed and seedlings at a subsidized price. Members may choose only ONE of the subsidized options on the offer form. Sponsor members can select two items from the form. The Indiana State Hunting Heritage Super Fund will pay for 40 percent of the seed and shipping charges.
All orders are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Quantities are limited on subsidized seed and seedlings due to the dollars allocated to the program. Seed shipping allow 2 to 3 weeks from the date your order is entered in our system. Seedlings will be shipped after April 1st. Additional bags of seed or seedlings may be purchased in unlimited quantities using the non subsidized portion of the order form.
Longevity Clover Strut and Rut® Mix
This mix consists of four varieties of clovers; Crimson, Cresendo Ladino, White Dutch and Arrowleaf. This mix should be tolerant of a variety of soils and climatic conditions and the plot will last for several years if maintained correctly. Can be planted in early fall or early spring depending on soil moisture and temperatures and frost-free days. Late winter or early spring plantings are frequently attained by overseeding existing small annual grain such as winter wheat. All seed is pre-inoculated. Do soil testing and make sure that soils are treated with recommended amendments. Check with your local Extension Service office for local seeding methods and times.
Red Splendor Crabapple
An upright, more or less open headed tree, flowers are a rosy red bloom. Outstanding features are the tree's almost complete disease resistance and its small red fruit, 1cm in diameter that cling to the trees all winter. The flowering crabapples are a durable and highly useful ornamental trees that are strikingly beautiful in bloom. Crabapples remain on the tree all through winter, providing a good food source for turkeys, grouse and songbirds well into spring.
Every bag of seed or bundle of seedlings purchased results in an acre of quality wild turkey brood habitat or winter food being established. This helps the State Chapter address key issues identified in our state strategy of the North American Wild Turkey Management Plan. Your membership and financial support at our banquets helps make this program possible and allows the chapter to address high priority habitat needs in our state. THANK YOU!
