Default fall food plots

Anybody decided what they are going to plant this fall? I sprayed my plots with generic roundup about three weeks ago. Plan on turning the soil shortly and then spray again in another 2-3 weeks to get ready for mid sept planting. I hunt in south Georgia, so if you plant fall crops any earlier they will burn up. I'm not sure what I will plant, but will throw some Rape into the mixture. The first year I planted Rape deer never touched it, since then they mow to the ground, especially when it sweetens after a frost(late season here).
Also, does anyone know what to spray wild wisteria with to kill it. I have tried roundup and Ortho brush killer. All they do is knock it back for a while and then the vines flourish. Almost as bad as kudzo. My wisteria problem is near my water well so I need to keep it safe. Good Hunting. Mike

clover, clover, and more clover... winter wheat, oats... i put in 5 food plots last year, & got kicked off my lease right before season started. i didn't actually pay $$ for my lease, it was a work for hunting rights kind of thing, and we hadn't done any work (none was asked of us) and the property owner was diagnosed with cancer & was turning everything over to her daughter & to simplify things the owner asked us not to hunt... so her family got to hunt my plots and they did well...

I'm curious as to what alfalfa seed sells for in the midwest and west. here its $200+/50lb bag. Alfalfa is only an annual here, it doesn't tolerate the dry summer heat.
I go through the midwest alot and if seed is cheaper there I'll stop and buy. Whats a few extra hundred pounds on a 80k truck.
The reason why I'm asking about alfalfa is I heard the farmer near me would not plant it again because the deer ate it all up. I'll plant a small monitoring spot first.
Rio, they have some turnips out now that not only feed the deer but help break up the soil. The turnip part is over two feet in length and deer will paw them out even under snow. Plus they love the foilage too. I have one area where I can't get my 6' harrow to work into compacted soil, that would be a good area for turnips.

Well they do beat up the alfalfa some but it's all the corn that takes a beating around here. You can FOR SURE TELL where the deer destroy edges of corn fields.... Last year was the worst i have ever seen it... It gets worse and worse every year...

Down here in TX we cannot grow alfalfa or corn, it's to hot & dry... Another seed that does well in dry climates is chicory... Good luck on whatever you decide, and let me know what works for you... 7 weeks & I'll be slingin some arrows!!!

Went to camp last Wednesday. Spent two days harrowing and bush hogging. I got one food plot spread with fertlizer and then the rains came ane came and came. Looks like I won't have chance to plant till opening week of gun season. I decided to plant a mix called Green Spot, southern mixture. It has some high sugar grasses, two types of clover, turnips, and rape. I have never heard of high sugar grasses before, but decided to give it a try. Good hunting.

I've never heard of high sugar grasses either, but I'm no farmer...
The blends are OK, but to really know what the deer are or are not eating you can plant single types of seeds @ different plots. See what they really like and just plant that seed the following year... I would also recommend testing the soil and see what your PH level is. You can do that with a soil tester ($25). I don't know the soil in that region, but I would almost guarantee you'll need to add some lime to get the PH level correct. If memory serves me correct you want a PH level of 7. Correcting the PH level will make the plot really explode with growth. Buy the pellets, not the powdery stuff (easier to spread)... Good luck!!!

Your country agent will also work with you in most cases over the type soil you have. It really helps if he's in your parents' Sunday school class.
