Currently, I hunt on a farm and have recieved the ok to plant a small food plot in an unused pasture up in a finger of a valley. The place for the plot is actually a draw that is covered on 3 sides by woods. Most of the native plants are tall grass (which we typically mow early summer). The clover then takes over the area we mow:biggrin: This location also has an incline up the draw which I am concerned with errosion if I remove the current vegitation and plant new. The farmer, and others around, have a good variety of corn, soybeans, alfalfa, winter wheat, etc. I would like this plot for hunting in late fall and winter more than for nutritional quality in the summer. Questions I have are: 1. I have heard of some of these "no till" formulas of forages. What is the good (or bad) word on these being planted in an area like this? 2. Can I just mow the native vegitation, lime/fertize as necessary, plant seeds and hope to see growth that will rival the local grasses (I like the clover, so that is a plus)? 3. And finally, if this pasture is used in the future, any idea on how the livestock might take to my plot? I was planning for late season Brassicas with clover to ignite the plot in early spring. Might this be all for not if the "cows come home"?
