Food plot planting thread
What are your plans?

What mixture of seeds and how much per acre?

Fertilizer , how much per acre

When are you going to plant?

Disc or rotary tiller?

What are your secrets?

re: Food plot planting thread
Will be my first year doing it for myself, I plan to plant last weekend of September, a mixture of oats, wheat, chicory, clover and peas, not sure of the variety, will talk to the guys at the co-op

Not sure on rate of fertilizer, have not had a chance to do soil samples

Have a rotary tiller, plan on scraping up some dirt this weekend to prep

re: Food plot planting thread
In a new lease this year closer to the house after 8 years in Mississippi. Not expecting anything to hang on the wall, just a place to go. I have two 1/4acre personal plots. Planned on planting a brassica mix and crimson clover. Took soil samples last weekend and the pH came in around 4 Going dump a ton of lime this weekend and hope for the best.

Will be skipping foodplots this year. Need to do a lot of dozer work first and weather hasn't really helped with that all summer.

I'll have 40 acres planted in rye grass for my cows so that's at least something

re: Food plot planting thread
We usually plant last weekend of September/first weekend of October.

The past few years we've been planting Buckbusters in some plots, and Biologic in others.

Either way, it doesn't really matter. It's a lot of work done just for deer that only come out at night, lol.

Food for thought, you can go to your local co-op and let them know what you want to plant and around how much property needs planting. You can rent a buggy and they will add the seed and fertilizer all in one. Saves a ton of time.

Will be planting 54 acres of plots this year, going with buck busters mix, had good results last year. Planting last week of September, we put out 200#/ acres of 13-13-13. Rain prevented us from limeing think summer will hit a few plots with 2 tons/acre

re: Food plot planting thread
Been looking at a spring plow to run before my disc. Looking at what they can do with shovel tips it may eliminate the disc all together. I could plow then drag to break and smooth.

Anyone have any experience with them in the felicianas?

We normally do not start planting until October. Cut and spray now then disc and plant later when its about to rain.

The buggy from the co op works if you have the room to turn it. We could only reach half the plots with it so we just get the seed/ferlilizer delivered to location.

re: Food plot planting thread
We have planted Buck Busters Premium Seed Blend for about 10 years in East Feliciana with great success. It is consistently the best looking plots over winter.

Recently we switched to planting a higher amount of clover in plots vs cereal grains which pays huge dividends in the spring/summer. Our plan this year is to mix Crimson, Red, and White Clover with Chicory and Wheat. Deer prefer oats over wheat, but the seed heads of wheat in the spring are actually sought after by deer. Our goal is provide a year-round food plot vs just winter food.

Anybody else planting this weekend? Looks like we might get a little rain Sunday and Monday but pretty hot and dry after that.

I cut and threw out some rye grass seed on the powerline about 5 days ago. They have widened the powerline and are working on new poles and then are replacing the old poles with another set of new metal poles.

Not sure if they are going to drive all over my spot or just half of it. So, nothing but rye grass this year.
