Default Ultimate Fall Mix Question

Im going to plant the first week or two of September. my food plot is one acre I want to plant wanamaker's ultimate fall mix(oats, blue lupine, peas). I was also thinking of throwing in some wheat and turnips. I have heard the ultimate fall mix will outgrow the rest of what i plan to plant and choke it out? should i plant ultimate fall mix on one half and the wheat, turnips on the back half of the plot or just mix it in all together and see what happens? again my food plot is one acre rectangular shaped. thanks

not familiar with that product. I too would be concerned that some of the product may not mature ( not sure of your location but hopefully southern). Side note: Most of what I read, so called experts like to shape their plots into different shapes than a rectangle, something more like a tear drop, dogleg, leading to or coming out of the woods shape. I know I didn't describe it well but just passing along some reading info. Give the deer a plot shape to move through naturally, how's that.

shapes are good. a figure 8, L, make the deer feel more comfortable using the plot. have you given any thought to strips of different plants? that could solve the choking problem.
