I have seven acrea area that we are going to be planting our food plot on. Last year I just had winter wheat and oats and a little rape. This year we want to plant winter wheat, oats, rape, arrowleaf clover and australian winter peas. My question is how much of each should I put out for the seven acres? And is this a good combination?

sounds good to me. you might try some Lab Lab as well if you plant in the next week or so. $47.00 for 20 pounds for an acre is what I paid but it has not been out a month and is getting slammed and handles browsing good also.

25 lbs wheat
25 lbs oats
20 lbs winter peas
5 lb arrowleaf
5 lb rape

PER ACRE

if you have seven acres,.. take each and say times 7 ,... this of course if you want to mix it all together!!

Is it 1 solid 7 acre field??
if so,.. i would seriously look into splitting it 3 ways. So much in perrenial plot, so much in left standing anuals, and so much in rotating seasonal annuals.

Thanks guys for the info!! I will have this planted next weekend. We are finally getting some rain down here in Georgia, so I can finally plant!
It is a solid seven acres. We have three other plots on the farm. One of the plots is an annual plot and that plot is 4 acres. I am trying to make my plot the honey hole!

Deerchaser007. What is the mix that you and BSK use?
Does this sound like a good mix to everyone? I will take any recommendations that are out there to better my plot and knowledge. Another reminder is that I will be planting this in Georiga about 45 minutes west of Augusta, GA. Thanks for all the help everyone has provided. I am planting this Sunday and Monday and will post pictures once I get back!! And what how much and what type of fertilizer should I put on the plot?
Man the prices of seed down here in Florida where I live is outrageous. For winter peas it is $37.99 per 50, oat are $37.99 per 50, winter wheat is $32.99 per 50! I can't believe the difference in prices between Florida and TN. The prices in Georgia where my farm is are comparable to TN, but still a little more expensive by a couple of bucks.

The mix they use is 50lb Oats or wheat, 15lb crimson clover, 5 lb arrowleaf clover, 5 lb dwarf essex rape. This is the annual plot. For perennial use 3 lb white clover, 5 lb red clover, 50 lb oats/wheat, 2-3 lb chicory per acre. If you use the annual bushhog it down in may and overseed in buckwheat.

It is a solid 7 acres. I think we might try splitting three ways. Any suggestions on what to plant if we do it three ways. Which stuff in each section and how much? Also which type of fertilizer is best to use?
