Alabama Subsidy Offer Spring 2014

Dear Alabama Member:

The Alabama State Chapter Board of Directors is pleased to offer its members the opportunity to purchase Turkey Gold® Chufa at a subsidized price.

Diamond Life members $10,000 & up may purchase a total of Ten:

  • 50-pound bags of Turkey Gold® Chufa for just $65 each, shipping included

Life members $1,000 - $9,000 may purchase a total of Five:

  • 50-pound bags of Turkey Gold® Chufa for just $65 each, shipping included

Sponsor members $250 may purchase a total of Two:

  • 50-pound bags of Turkey Gold® Chufa for just $65 each, shipping included

Annual members $35 may purchase a total of One:

  • 50-pound bag of Turkey Gold® Chufa for just $65 each, shipping included.

As an additional benefit, each member can purchase additional bags of Turkey Gold® Chufa for just $115 unsubsidized, in unlimited quantities.

All orders are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Quantities are limited on subsidized seed due to the dollars allocated to the program. Chufa will start shipping as soon as possible and continue through June.

Turkey Gold® Chufa produces small nut-like tubers that turkeys scratch out of the ground. Once birds find the tubers in the fall, they keep coming back. A 50-pound bag of seed will cover approximately 1 acre. Select an open area that receives full sunlight. Sandy or loamy soils are preferred. Prepare the seedbed by plowing and disking. Have soil tested to determine exact amounts of lime and fertilizer to add. If you can not get the soil tested, use 400 pounds of 10-10-10 or 13-13-13 fertilizer and 1,000 pounds of lime per acre. Soil pH should be between 6.4 - 7.2. Broadcast, May through mid July, at a rate of 40-50 pounds per acre and plant at a depth of 2 to 3 inches.

Every bag purchased results in an acre of quality wild turkey brood habitat being established. This helps the AL State Chapter address a key issue 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!
