Well, food plots can run into a great deal of time, effort, and money...it's largely dependent on soil quality, intended crop, and equipment used. Most state conservation agencies have agricultural experts on hand to assist landowners (free of charge) in determining what, if anything, could be grown on a given piece of property. Many state agricultural departments will also analyze soil quality and make recommendations fairly inexpensively. There exist so many variables it's hard to generalize, most of this depends on the quality of the ground, size of plots, and budget.

Many own fabulous ground and enjoy great success with 'biologic' simply cultivated with ATV attachments, others must go large scale with expensive machinery time, mowing, disking, spreading mass quantities of lime, seeding, etc..

Short of the 'fascinating' new deer crops, one would be hard pressed to beat alfalfa at about 24-27% protein, good old corn, and milo.
