Depends on the quality of your soil. You may not need any lime or fertilizer.Your not trying to grow 150bu corn or 50bu beans. I've got plots with beans waist high and corn with a nice ear on it, and used no fertilizer, but they are in very good soil.

I have never done food plots. I'm sure it varies based on what your planting.
In general... What is the average cost per acre ?


We plant 40 fields and that would be around 20 acres total on about 3000 leased. We spread them out and we spend about 800 on seed give or take a deal on seed or two..........and we spent 13.50 per bag on 80 bags of 13-13-13.......not to mentions all of the equipement costs of hauling tractors , gas etc...... \:\)

Around 200 per acre sounds about right. Depends on the seed you plant though.
