I have never done a food plot in the spring so I don't know what to tell you there. Ours are always fall plots and we put in winter wheat, Three types of clover, Buck forage oats and occasionaly some rape.

till it all and put down weed killer,like round up.Or you can go with whitetail institutes" no plow".and another company makes "secret spot"

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
