I am a newby to food plots. I got the quality deer management food plot book that all you recommended and put my first plot in this March with clover/chicory. I live out of town and just had a chance to check on it yesterday and the pics show what is going on. My question is: do i just need to mow down the weeds so that the clover can compete or should I spray, or both? There is lots of clover and chicory but the weeds are much higher. Also, not real sure how to upload the pics?

If the grass is too high for spraying, mow high wait 2 weeks then spray

What ahall said. Also next time u do clover it does much better for me to plant in fall. I always roundup the area 2 weeks before planting and it makes a world of difference for weeds.

Well it was cleared with a dozer prior to planting but i probably should have sprayed. So you think it's best to definately spray after mowing?
