Default Food Plot

Hi, I'm very new to food plots and need help identifying what's sprouting in my plot I planted last week. I planted whitetail extreme which has WINA chicory, BERSEEM clover, and persist small burnet. I also planted some alfalfa with it. I know it's one of them but would like to know which because it's the only one currently sprouting. Thanks for any help!

To early to tell at that stage. Looks just like early sprouting cukes and pumpkins.

Looks like it might be clover, as it first looks when it emerges before getting second leaves. See this photo: http://www.lincoln.ac.nz/conversatio...or-sub-clover/ I assume this is a close-up photo.

Thanks for the responses! I initially thought clover as well but after looking online, I noticed that other plants look the same during emergence. I hope that I start to see other sprouts shortly! Has anyone planted extreme before? The bulk of the mixture (60%+) is persist small burnet. How long does it normally take for small burnet to emerge in ideal situations? I planted a day before 70's and received 4+ inches of rain over the last 7 days.. Thanks for all the help!

Soil should be damp but warm for seed to germinate properly. With 4 inches of rain and no sun you may have to start over.

Oh wow I hope I don't have to replant. Not looking forward to that if it becomes necessary but this is my trial and error stage so I guess ill do what I have to :/ my only saving grace is that most of the rain came at night and it was moderate sun 3/4 of the week. Forecast calls for more sun this week and a little rain with temps in the 70's. I checked last night and finally seeing sprouts of chicory and burnet, from what I could tell by online pics. It's day 9 so hopefully I see a lot more sprouts this week or it may be back to the drawing board!

Default Update pic of Whitetail Extreme food plot

Extreme is doing very well! 5 weeks in and I couldn't really ask for much more. Very thick and only getting thicker!

It is Millet.
I have it all through my yard.
I got it from some fill dirt I had put in my yard many years ago.
The pictures are next to my garden.
Don't worry about it animals like to eat it.
