Planted some Plots

We just planted 5 small plots on our lease. We went with Shock Plot and wheat. Here is a pic of 1. Ill try to get some more when they start growing. The shock plot folks claim there stuff gets high quick. We shall see.

We sprayed each spot with Gly-4, let everything die, waited several weeks, went back through and tilled it up, and then sowed. Hope it works well enough.

Next year try planting your foodplots on the weekend of the full moon. crops above the ground do better as full moon brings water tables up. also try a cheap soil tester they cost about $10, we have to add lime to ours about every other year. We planted our food plots on the last full moon they are up about 18" already and the deer are all over them. Good luck and hope you have a good season

How much does it usually cost to plant a small sized food plot anyway(cheapest possible)?

Its more time than money RN. If you got the equipment to disc/till etc then all your out is the seed and fertilizer. $25 bucks would buy enough for a 1/2 acre easy.

Rain all over the place down here. It hit at a good time. Plots should be doing well by the time I make it back down there.
