There are many variables including quality and quantity of natural and cultivated forages available besides food plot crops in the area.
When food plots are the primary forage and there’s enough acres of plots that deer don’t totally consume all forage rapidly I prefer about 10% of the food plot acreage in clover and 90% in forage soybeans. I overseed the beans about 45-60 days before the average first frost date with Broadside (a mix of radishes, a forage wheat, and brassicas). This plan works very well to provide quality forage, attract deer, and improve the soil.
