    Anyone re-planting their food plots this spring? My farm is about 35 miles north of Columbia. I'm really struggling to make a decision on seed selection. What are you planting?

    Need more info, Tworock. What is the size of your plot and do you have equipment?
    Clover really brings em in Fall. You can't beat corn, milo, and soybeans in late Fall and early Winter.
    I tried turnips this year with mixed results.
    Winter wheat is always a draw.

    My place is located between Harrisburg and Higbee. I have two food plots about an acre each. I have a tractor, disc, harrow and a broadcast spreader for my ATV. Last year was my first year with the food plots and I planted clover in the spring and wheat in the fall. I was considering forage soybeans this year.

    Did you not have a good stand on your clover???? 2 acres can do alot for ya. The beans maynot last long, but could be worth a try. You may want to go with a good quality roundup ready bean, so you can spray for weed control. If you get lucky and the deer allow them to grow thru the summer, you could windup with some great late season plots.
