 deer feed plot planting

Im ready to plant my "deer chow" and am wondering if it really matters that the sweet corn is in rows. Since deer dont use pickers, why wouldnt simple broadcast seeding work ? Would the possibility of crowding the plants affect thier yield ?

True, it could effect yield but if you don't plant it to heavy there is no reason that you can't broadcast it. Just make sure you control the weeds and give it nitrogen.

trbo
Broadcast that seed and dont worry about spacing. I have 2 suggestions. Forget sweet corn! If you have any coons around at all they will devestate an acre or two in no time flat when it becomes ripe. Go with your standard round up ready corn. After it germinates and gets about 3-4" tall drive thru the plot (In a straight line ) with your quad or tractor and spray that sucker with 41% glysophate, (dont buy round up by a generic form of the round up). Now your weeds are controlled, you have less competition since you drove and made rows with your tractor, and you will have thr est of the weekend to do what you want instead of picking seedlings
Good luck. PS If that corn fails, plant a brassica mix on Aug. 1 or winter wheat at the end of Aug. That will be your escape route if your corn does not work out for you.
Good luck

Corn needs a lot of nitrogen so any fertilzer that is mostly nitrogen should work.
