food plots

The area however is still very moist. It can also be tilled. I cannot cut down any trees also. Any suggestions or comments would be nice.
I have a lot of plots in that area and in that particular situation the best is going to be some sort of clover/perennial mix. I use G2 Outdoor Products based out of LaCrosse, WI and have had great success with them. Their perennial is very high end but not to expensive and grows in shady areas. The other idea might be their xtreme fall brassica blend.

Can you open the canopy at all?
