Oasis Chicory Seed - Oasis chicory seed is a high yielding, broad leaved perennial forage chicory variety that has excellent feed value for livestock or deer food plots. Oasis Chicory has been bred for greatly improved disease resistance, which significantly increases survival under grazing. Oasis Chicory also breaks winter dormancy earlier, so it has a longer growing season to provide high quality feed for a longer season.

  • High Extended Season Yields
  • Very Palatable & Digestible
  • High Energy Levels
  • High Mineral Levels
  • Reliable Summer Forage
  • Improved Disease Resistance

Oasis is suitable for all types of production livestock, and ideal for high quality forage during the summer. Oasis Chicory is ideally managed in a mix with clovers.

Seeding and Establishment:
Chicory can grow well on a wide range of soils, including sandy soil, and silt loams. Chicory grows best on high fertility soils with moderate to good drainage. Chicory is best sown around mid spring, but can also be sown effectively in the late summer/early fall. It should be sown in a fully cultivated seed-bed after pasture that has been killed with herbicide. Care should be taken to sow at a depth of 3/8" to 1/2" to ensure good germination. For a chicory dominant pasture sow at 6-8 lb/ac with 5 lb/ac red clover and 3 lb/ac white clover. In a grass-clover mix, show at 1-2 lb/ac in the spring or 2-3 lb/ac in the fall.

Grazing Management:
Ideally, Oasis chicory should be rotationally grazed to prolong stand life. Chicory should be grazed when it is 6-8" tall, leaving a residual of 2-3", and then allowed to re-grow. If managed appropriately, with good soil and fertility, a chicory stand should last 3-5 years.
