When is the latest day to plant a fall food plot in north Missouri?



The average first frost date in northern Missouri is October 10th.  I like to plant most food plot crops 45-60 days before the first frost.  The only negative to planting later is that the crops will produce less tonnage before the first frost.  Remember, October 10th is the average date of the first frost.  It could be weeks earlier or later.  I’ve planted during very late September in your area and produced enough forage to serve as an attractant for hunting season.
