Chaneylake and A. Hall, if you don't have a planter, what would you do different if you were forced to broadcast the seeds? I have tillage equipment and the ability to spray but don't have a planter. Just wanted to pick y'all's brains.

Same here.

BTW couldn't I save half the seeds for 2015?

I could plant 2 acres, I've got the room just didn't think I'd need that many SF to bring them in....

You can broadcast them it's just that the majority of times people get them too thick

yes you can easily save seeds for next year, broadcasting will work just as well, I did the broadcast before I purchased a planter

I mixed seed with fertilizer and cut the output rate in half and went over fields in opposite directions twice to get a more uniform spreading, I them ran a disc over sown fields as lightly as possible, I do not remember any problems using this process

Thank you for the input Chaneylake and jmb4wd, is there a secret to keeping finches (especially golden finches) from eating all the seeds? The last time I planted sunflowers they raided all the seeds.

Chaneylake, how does this affect your deer hunting in that area? Or do you even deer hunt in that area? I've considered a couple times of putting in some dove plots on (3) pastures I have that are sort of broke up into (1) 3 acre field and (2) fields that are 1.5 acre each. I'm just too worried it would negatively affect my deer hunting with the pressure and gun fire.

the finches are usually the first birds to hit our fields, to my knowledge they have never eaten enough seed to bother anything.

we do have one field that the migrating blackbirds or starlings will completely clean a field this has happened sometime in November the past 2 years
