Food plot time

Recommended Posts

Whent back to my property that I lease last night to see how the clover was doing a week after being mowed. Starting to come back alot better then I anticipated! I sprayed all the clover with to kill the grasses last night also. Mixture was 10 oz of Clethodim 2 E and 10 0z of 80/20 Surfactant ( crop oil) in a 15 gallon sprayer. Research says it takes about 2 -3 weeks to knock out the grass, so it's a waiting game now. Also sprayed our biggest plot with Roundup to kill the grass in that so hopefully next week I can get in there and till it up and plant Turnips and Winter Greens.

Can anyone help me with what kind of grass this is? It's covering a huge area that I sprayed last night but cannot figure out exactly what it is, almost looks like it was planted but it definitely wasn't.

1st pic was taken 8/4 the day after this plot was mowed, 2nd one was taken 8/12. Amazing how fast just mowing ( since Clethodim hasn't taken its toll yet) can bring back the clover !! Super excited so far. Not to mention a couple bucks that will make to shooters list in the next few years!

Clover and chicory is looking better and better by the day! Had fields tilled on Monday but could not get the seeder running unfortunately, really wanted to get the seed in the ground before all thar rain on Tuesday. Got the seeder running after brining it home Monday evening, thank god! Headed back to the property last night and layed out all the Forage Rape and Turnips and rolled the fields after. First time this year I can say Im really hoping for some rain!

Got the final few plots in and some are starting to pop already and the clover pic is a sweet little kill spot we planted this spring and mowed regularly, it has great access and should produce! This year tried a mix of oats, cow peas, radishes n turnips. Also threw in some buck wheat.

Rain baby rain!! Please!
