 food plots

I would like to plant some food plots for deer and turkeys. The areas I would like to plant have been bush hogged. Could somebody come up with a game plan and tell me what implement or implements I need to buy. I have a Kubota M4900 tractor. Thanks for your help.

 food plots

With out getting into a week long typing project, I can give you the basic prep. Do a soil test right away and get your lime down asap. As soon as it greens up, spray these fields with a round up generic (41% glysphate) with a sprayable suffacant added at 1-2 quarts an acre. (15 gallons water to the required amount of round up or genaric) Do this atleast 2 times. Break you ground and prepair it for a seed bed anyway you can. (time table) by now it should be July 1. Let that field SIT!!! Any new weed seeds that you bring to the surface should germinate by the end of the month. Spray again the 3rd week in July.
NOW your ready. Fertilize (per soil sample recomendation) and lightly disk this in. Seed your plots and cover per seed requirments. If you have a packer, pack it and pray for rain.
On Aug. 1 till the 7th, I would go with a brassica mix and throw in clover. If it is later than that try a winter wheat or a bfo with clover.
If you want to read some great advice about food plots go to Michigan Sportsman.com Go down to the habitat forum.
All they do there is talk food plots. You can read for weeks!! All kinds of good info and all you need to know about how when where and what to use for deer/turkey food plots. Then come ack here with your new knowlege in food plots and ask your questions about what tillage impliments your interested in.
Thats the best I can do for you in a short post with out knowing more about your habitat and plans.
Good luck!

Chufa/Nutsedge

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I copied this from another site.

Wyant Speaks Out On Nutsedge
Today, Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) Director Dan WYANT issued a yellow nutsedge message to state residents, particularly wildlife enthusiasts and farmers.

"It has come to our attention that a popular product being planted in the spring to feed wildlife in the fall and winter is actually an illegal plant," Wyant said. "We have discovered that sporting goods retailers around the state have been selling the propagative parts of the prohibited noxious weed, yellow nutsedge, as a food plot material for a variety of wildlife."

According to Wyant, yellow nutsedge (Cyperus esculentus) is a serious pest in agricultural areas as it threatens to reduce yields. He said it is a perennial weed that can be very difficult, and expensive to control, and requires the use of additional pesticides when it invades farm crops.

MDA officials warn that several suppliers, using a variety of brand names, are selling the small tubers under the common name chufa. Other names are chufa flatsedge and chufa tigernut. Consumers that may have purchased the product are encouraged to return it to the retailer.

State inspectors are advising retailers found to be selling the product to stop doing so and return the product to the manufacturer. Retailers are being told that if they voluntarily cooperate with MDA to stop selling this product they will not face regulatory actions

A number of states in the South East are encouraging planting chufa, North Carolina and Tennessee being a couple. Chufa is an annual and must be replanted each season.
