What’s a good forage crop for areas with very wet soil?

Dr. Grant,

Can you recommend something to plant for a food plot that will be in a super moist area? We have a large area in North Louisiana that is in an open bottom, but after big rains it will hold water for quite a while. Just not sure if it might be too wet for eagle seed mix. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.


I’m not aware of any quality forage or grain crop that does well in areas with saturated soils or standing water.  If this area tends to be drier during the fall you might try planting Eagle Seed’s Broadside blend during the fall.

I’d focus on finding suitable areas to plant outside the flood zone.

Enjoy creation,
