Every property is different and the goal of a food plot varies as well. Is your property surrounded by agriculture fields, forest, or both? Are these plots being created as a primary food source or hunting plot? If your property is not located near agriculture fields than 10% of your property are recommended for nutritional plots. We recommend that 45-65% of these nutritional plots should be in a perennial crop such as clover, alfalfa, and chicory. These varieties are high in protein and with proper maintenance can last up to 5-7 years. The other 35-55% should be planted in annuals such as brassica, grains, soybeans and corn. Having both perennial and annual plots will help in supplying the proper nutrition threw out the entire year.
