I would like to know what is the absolute minimum needed to make a couple of small food plots? Equipment and seed types would be helpful.

Thank you for your help.

seeder,sprayer and a mower would all be needed for clover. bare ground is not needed so much. spray exsisting weeds and spread seed.

Is wheat good? We don't have alot of land, ATV, or tractor. We are just trying to keep the deer around durring daylight hours. We have lots of oaks though.

A sprayer and herbicide use would be a great tool to invest in. A great weather Rolex would be another.

with wheat you are probably goin to want to disturb the ground for best results ie.disc. But you could proabably get away with doing like scott said with the clover. Spray, spread seed, and mow the weeds to cover the seed
