Fusion are you talking about a summer food plot? I don't know of anything that will stand a severe drought very long. Iron Clay Peas are fairly tough and you might have some success with soybeans. I think fertilizing briars, honeysuckle and other natural food sources might be the best option.

We can get over 4 feet of height out of our Eagle Seed Roundup Ready Forage Soybeans in a Georgia drought. They produce a larger root system than standard RR varieties and scavenge for moisture down deep. We get over 6' with irrigation or timely rainfall. The RR part eliminates the weeds competing for sunlight and water which is important when available soil moisture is low.It is better to plant early, but with these late maturing soybeans, you can plant up to July 1. We have severalprivate wildlife managersthat tested them in Georgia, Mississippi,and Alabama with great successprior to release. We have also developed a Roundup Ready Quail Haven which is the viny climbing type of soybean that looks great.
