Last year we experienced almost a 25% loss due to rabbit and rodent feeding. This year, with the application of Plantskydd, it was 2–3%.
“Those young trees certainly wouldn’t have made it through the first season without significant damage from deer browse and rubbing had we not sprayed them with the repellent.”
We firmly believe the application of Plantskydd gave us a decent sunflower harvest for wintertime bird feeding!
The application really reduced deer feeding at that point as the deer left the fields for about 10 days. Rainfall was minimal during that period. The soybeans were able to recover and develop substantial leaf growth. The deer damage in untreated strips in the field was eliminated as well.
New Dwarf Apple Trees, 2013, 2014, 2015 We planted 101 new dwarf apple trees this year (2013) and they came out so well, we plan on putting in another 200 next year. We are in Northern Vermont and we have more than our share of deer. An orchardist friend of mine told me I’d never… Read More
“After the first application, deer browsing essentially stopped, and deer tracks could still be seen all over the property.”
Plantskydd is used by farmers and orchardists to protect from animal browse damage the following crops: Soybeans, corn, grapes, fruit/nut trees, blueberries, cauliflower, cotton, pumpkins, strawberries, vegetables, watermelon and more.
Crops like Soybeans and Cotton need to be protected right out of the ground. The first application must be made shortly after emergence.
Unlike other repellents that quickly lose their effectiveness after irrigating or rainfall, Plantskydd is rain and snow resistant. It does not require immediate re-application after irrigation or rainfall.

We expreienced a 30% increase in yield — representing well over $1 million!
Plantskydd will definitely be included in our plans next year and we will likely use it on more acreage where we suspect underperforming sites.

Damage to the trees was dramatically reduced immediately after the first application of Plantskydd and complete control was achieved once adequate coverage was acheived.
By the end of Summer, browse damage from deer was virtually eliminated.

Overview: 155 acre vineyard planted in stages over the last few years, with deer now roaming throughout. Deer damage has become intolerable, especially on the youngest 50 acres. Riparian zones run through the property making fencing impractical.
