I am beginning to start a plan for a food plot in Indiana. I have a less than a half of an acre that i recently took a tiller to. " my food plot field" Question is, I have been searching for some annuals or perrinials. to put in that field. The dirt has a PH of 6.5 and is on a slight northern slop, It has exellant drainage. it gets sun about 5-6 hours a day. It is sourounded by tulip poplar sassaphras SAPLINGS.
I found out on this site from someone that i should plant clover and chicory on the OLD logging trails leading to the small field. Well should i put the same in the food plot???? or would anybody suggest somithing different considering the PH, drainage and 5-6 hours of daylight.
If any body reads this and has any info. I would really consider it. Because I dont know hardly anything about food plots.

I have attached a google earth view and description of property.

On the image the square line represents my property. The circle in the middle is 100 year old logging trails. And where is says "# 1 food plot in this area is close to where i want to put a plot. Th big field to the south is a hayfield for the cows.
I manage alot of that property.

Ronn Ty vm You know your stuff and help people and i appreciate that.
I am in a classified forrest program and i have permision to cut out a half acre for a food plot. Close to maynard hill, "west" is my oak stand, And in the middle is the poplar stand and to the east is the sasaphras stand. I have alot to think about. And i will take in all the info i can. so thanks. I have been cutting and pasting alot of info to a word file, Your Name comes up alot. I am finding alot of info.
It seems i am getting over my head but with your advice and others I think within a couple of tries and a couple of years i will have it down. I HAD No idea that a food plot sometimes needs to be a certain shape. lol i thought they were all square!~!.. I like the figure 8 idea. So much to think about now!!
