I own 40 acres in ne mo So I compete with a lot of other corn and soybean crops
I only have approx. 1 1/2 acre of food plot. What would you recommend
eagle seed beans or some sort of clover mix. I also have a couple of other small areas 1/2 acre that could be planted but am wary as to spreading out my deer for hunting as I have limited time to hunt. Should I plant these other small areas in clover just for the nutrition of the herd.


I would recommend Eagle’s forage soybeans for the larger plot and a good white clover for the smaller plots.  Once the beans are harvested in the production fields you’ll probably have the only beans around!  The clover will be great for during warm winters like we are having so far this year an spring turkey season.

Enjoy creation,
