I normally have my food plots sprayed by now so everything will be dead by Labor Day when I normally try to plant but this year I haven't been able to find te to get it done .i might get a chance tomorrow to spray. do y'all think I should give it two weeks to start turning dirt which will be after Labor Day or is a week good enough ? Or should I just save my money and till up weeds with dirt and plant on Labor Day . My plots have been bushhoged for a month or so and there located in southern Lincoln county .

I would give it 2-3 weeks and then plant if your schedule allows. That would not be too late for sure.

When you mow, you put the plants in shock and they are subdued for a while. Better to wait a week or two between mowing & spraying to get a good kill. Don't get hung up an planting when everyone else does or a date on the calendar. Do it when conditions are right for your place.

I had a guy tell me years ago that more seed (and $) were wasted on Labor Day weekend than any other time of the year. That bit of advise is always in my mind when planting.

I used to plant Labor Day weekend no matter what. I too wasted a lot of seed doing this. Now I usually get them ready to plant and do it the first GOOD chance of rain mid September. Seen a lot better results by doing it that way.JMO

Last year we were done by August 10, but conditions were perfect. This year we also planted early, but again soil moisture was awesome and we got 1" rain the following two days. On the other hand, we have waited until mid-October due to drought.
