Default RE: Calling all food-plot specialists... need help!

first get a soil test if the soil is been taken care offor instance its been fertilized and limed like it should then it should be good to go. i plant clover and as long as you keep it mowed and and spray a weed killer called select on it to keep the weeds out it. if you keep the clover mowed about 8 in high the deer will like it more cause it isnt tough. and it will come up for a few years . in the fall i plant purple head turnips. hope that helps


Not sure about pH levels, but this is prime Illinois farmland backing up to a river bottom... crop rotation has been beans and corn for years, and the landowner employs no-till farming. Very fertile ground.
