53 Acres of Food Plots in North Carolina
Filed under: Uncategorized
I’ve been establishing 53 acres of food plots on a new project in coastal North Carolina. 20+ years of harvest data on this property has been accumulated and I am extremely interested to see how body weight, antler development, and fawn recruitment responds to 50+ acres of soybeans. Our food plot establishment on this project consisted of applying Glyphosate, using a no-till drill, planting 70 lbs. per acre of soybeans, and applying an appropriate amount of fertilizer. We received the go ahead on this project June 1st so the plots were established a little late. Their success will be primarily dependent upon adequate soil moisture now throughout the rest of the summer.
