Zero deer damage to organic sweet potatoes

Sassafras Creek Farm is an 80 acre organic farm located in Southern Maryland. Their goal is to: produce exceptionally delicious, fresh and healthy food for our community.

For years they had struggled with deer damage on a couple key acres of sweet potatoes. Prior to trying Plantskydd, they had used Egg & Hot Sauce based repellent, which had been an expensive undertaking. 

Spraying this morning after two large rain events over the past two weeks. Zero deer damage! Saw five deer this morning in a very nearby field. They ran past the sweets like they didn’t know they existed. Thank you

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