I just wanted a gut check before I bought the seed today. We're going to plant tomorrow. Does this look right? Thanks!

I would go a little heavier on the wheat and oats. Also, what type of clover are you using? It can make a big difference in lbs per acre. I normally go with 50lbs per acre of cereal grains and then adjust my other seed rates.

Basically what we did is took 20% of the suggested broadcast rates since we have a mix of 5 different seeds (50*.2=10lb/acre). That is why we don't have 50lb/acre as you suggest.

We haven't decided for sure on the type of clover we'll buy. I'm open to suggestions.

I noticed the round-up on your list. Have you already sprayed?

You still may want to bump up your seeding rates. According to my Quality Food Plot book you still need about 50lbs per acre for wheat/oats even in mixes.

Way to low on the wheat and oats. Could be low on the clover, depending on your goals and what type of clover it is.

That's interesting. My thought was that there was only so much soil to support the vegetation, so I'll take a percentage of the suggested broadcast rate. I'm no food plot-ologist though.

Would you recommend 50/acre also?

Thanks for the feedback, guys!
