A food plot is an annual or perennial planting of grain, legumes, and/or Forbes (wildflowers). A food plot offers wildlife a place to forage for food in late fall, winter and early spring after field crops are harvested. It is left standing over winter to encourage wildlife use. Food plots are an excellent choice to encourage wildlife survival. Deer, quail, turkey, rabbits and songbirds benefit from these food plots. Seed should be planted in the spring and left standing over winter. One food plot is recommended for every forty acres.
