Should the Summer Release food plot be terminated in August before the fall crop?

I plan to plant the Fall Release blend about 45 to 60 days before the date of the average first frost.  That means I plan to plant about August 15th or later here, pending on the available soil moisture.  It’s been so rainy here that we are still planting which means I may have to terminate the Summer Release crop after I drill the Fall Release into it early this all..  That’s farming – be ready for the unexpected.

Growing plants do a LOT of wonderful things for the soil’s health so I strongly prefer planting green so there’s a crop growing at all times – as many days of the year as possible.
