Not all soils are the same! It is crucial to make the proper adjustments to maximize your properties habitat. There is more to wildlife nutrition than just throwing down a few seeds and hoping they grow. A careful analysis of the area, habitat & wildlife using the property is required to determine the exact needs and practices that should be implemented.
Soil type and slope are two very basic fundamentals that warrant serious consideration. The soil should have the capacity to grow what is planted. Shallow soils, rocky soils or soils that remain wet are not good candidates for most food plots. The site should not have slopes greater than five percent. Sites with slopes greater than five percent should never be tilled due to the erosion tillage will likely cause.

What to plant is usually the topic in question for most phone calls we receive regarding food plots. What is planted depends on the intended season of use. The vast majority of food plots are planted in September for fall and winter use. For most food plots, appropriate fertilizer should be applied. Soil samples are the only way to determine the proper fertilizer needed.
Fertilizing a food plot not only increases forage production, it increases the nutritional value of the forage as well, making it more attractive to deer.
The size of the food plot is also important and often overlooked. In areas with high wildlife densities, small food plots may be rapidly consumed by deer, therefore not allowing the food plot to meet its intended use.
