As for inexpensive, you can't go wrong with alphafa or clover.

Many questions would have to be answered first. Are you speaking of a plot that will be planted soon as used as a Fall hunting plot? Do you have the areas already cleared? Have you taken a soil sample to see what amount of lime and fertilizer you'll need to assure that the soil will not bind it's nutrients? All this is critical in developing a successful plot.

Also, this would probably gather more feedback if placed in the Whitetail Management forums below.

A lot depends on what state you livein and the growing season,a good late Fall crop would be Winter Wheat,late July and early August is a good time for planting turnip and raddishes and they are a cheap and easy crop to grow.
