Food Plots Fall 2006

Postby jbullard1 » Mon Aug 28, 2006 3:10 pm

Has anyone started any work on foodplots? I have run a bushog and chisel plow over mine but they're way to dry to plant anything :cry: Sure wish it would rain

rain ? what is that ?



i plan on starting this weekend perhaps, after dove hunting. I will probably have to take a day off work to get anything done.

I plan on bushogging and spraying some "hot" round-up on it & let it sit a week.

then i'm going to run a breaking plow over it & disc it over & over.

after that, if & when it ever rains, i plan right before the rain comes, to plant clover, wheat, buck-oats and some biologic I bought at walmart,

We finished cutting the corn that was in mine, but I'll be another few weeks at least before I get rolling on mine.

I cut up all of mine Sunday morning. I'm going back tomorrow or Thursday and hitting the ones that had some tall grass again. They broke up really nicely, to my surprise, I figured I'd have to spend 2 hours on each one just to get some dust to fly up...lol.

I've also got to get the soil samples when I go back. Hopefully we won't have to drop a small fortune on fertilizer and such. :?

gtk, the corn cut better than expected with the dry weather. I think that the total average of all our corn was between 110 and 120 bushels/acre. Some cut well over 150, but some wasn't but 80 or so.

Thats better than around here One farmer neighbor actually stopped his combine and cut about 50 acres of corn with a bushog, Drought and fungus were the reasons . Looks like its gonna be one heck of a dove field.

They most likely did find alfatoxin. It put a hurting on some farmers about ten years ago.

I do know several farmers that didn't put a combine in hundreds of acres because it wasn't worth the fuel to cut it.
