Default food plots vs native

i was talking to a local wildlife and parks biologist about improving my habitat for deer. he is real hung up on grass and weeds and no food plots. he feels like the weeds and their seeds provide year round nutrition where the food plots are more of a fall and winter source. keeping in mind that i am in the middle of ag country and should have plenty of feed around he got me wondering. one place has plenty of cover and not much ag crops close to the cover. probably only 80 acres in the 640 acre section. my other property is in grass land with very little ag fields within any distance. i still feel like i could hold deer better with more crops. any suggestions on what to plant for year round or do you plant several smaller areas with different crops for different times of year in each one?
