I’ve planted it on silty loam. It did well until the soil got saturated. I’ve found hybrids provide the most tonnage per acre. It’s worth the $1/# more for the price of seed.
When in doubt fertilize what you have, you don’t have to do it all just the spots that will benefit your hunt. It beats procrastinating until next year. Im in the habit of trying an experiment if some sort every year. It might not work out but it’s better than doing nothing. Deer do not seem to care if it looks like a pic out of a seed catalog.The place we are buying already has ~7 acres of hay field that the neighbor (their grandkids, who we are friends with) bale for their livestock. So it kinda sorta already has plots. It is surrounded on two sides by Ag, usually corn or soy beans. So really I wanted a couple smaller plots of basically last season food. There are thick woods mixed in and a pond on the other side by the back of the house. It is a little over 30ac total, so not a ton of room, but I would like a couple winter food sources for the deer. I plan to start my own thread as soon as it is actually ours.
After thinking about it, it is probably more like 5 acers of hay.
Both of them have bulbs?.Where were you last week. Thank you
Bring your shovel, you can have as much as you want for free.I would gladly trade for some snow! Just maybe not as much as you guys get up there.
