Yes. I mixed the seeds together on a 50/50 ratio.

Grass killer, when grass is coming up you can spray this. Should not affect his plants but may burn some of them for a few days. Clethodim is the ingredient. The generic version of Arrest Max is called Grassout.

As of right now the only weeds I have is Nutsedge and some Dove weed coming up in spots. I have peas in some areas that are 6-8 inches tall and shading the soil below their leaves,this should keep most weeds out. Other areas the peas are 4 inches tall. I need rain and need to spot spray the nutsedge.

Planted this past weekend in time for a rain and finished today in time for rain. We are in southern Oklahoma. Planting 2 varieties of soybeans. The green field has a couple weeds but underneath is a ton of clover and chicory.

I canít wait to see growth. There is nothing like planting and seeing results. Iíll post progress reports once they start to sprout.
My main clover field was planted 4 years ago in whitetail institute and we have not once over seeded but I can see a few spots where itís starting to fade so Iíll broadcast some more in this fall. This was a pic this last may. Hopefully it can come up like this again or close

Yes sir, that is good looking clover. Where I am located clover does not grow too good. We only have a few choices of drought resistant plants.
I have to plant in March and hope to catch the rains in March and April . By the time May hits here we already in the 80's and the dry spells start.

Yes sir, I should have planted first week of March. We had a couple good rains then. I was afraid of a late frost this year, so I held back.

One of my little plots is down to bare dirt already. I got and extra sack of peas, so I might re seed it.

How big are your plots that are getting hit so hard? High deer density I assume? Room to make them bigger plots?

I have one small plot that is about 1/2 acre and it is in the middle of a white brush thicket. Every year it gets hit hard, but with the dry spell the peas could not keep up with the deer. There are 3 does that pretty much live in the thicket and they hang out in the plot.

I get away with IC peas on my place, but I have lots of good browse and a couple clover plots to distract them. Where I hunt in Trinity Co they wiped me out in 6 weeks. I saw as many as 8 deer in a trail cam pic several times in that 1.5 acre plot. Gonna try sunn hemp in it this year and see what happens.


Big Bone, that WINA clover is hard to beat. Kinda pricey, but when it lasts 4/5 years it kinda puts a little different light on it. I've had excellent luck with it.

Yes sir it is pricey but your exactly right. I was skeptical about the 5 years of comeback they were telling me but 4-5 is about right. Great product. Itís kinda of the same thing with the eagle seed soybeans. Obviously we hadnít tried all beans but the different varieties we have tried failed because of high deer density and ended up with bare dirt. The eagle seeds get hammered down as well but always gets back to 3-5 foot and the deer still like them

Should get more soakers west of DFW in next couple days. Been a good run of rain followed by sun since planting 4/20. I had peas/beans coming up an inch or two on 4/27 already.

Started on the 4 new plots on my new project property this evening. Wow. If it could go wrong it went wrong!

Vegetation was mowed 3 weeks ago and sprayed 2 weeks ago. You could shoot marbles on it. Didn’t know what I might unearth so I took my 4100 and an 8’ disk instead of my big equipment that I have to make a living with . Ground was as hard as Chinese algebra I went over it no less than 10 times on one plot. BOTH sides of 3 point broke OFF! Had to leave and get welding truck. Came back and welded till dark. Didn’t want to risk the seed and have another break so I loaded up at dark and headed in. I’ll try to finish that 1 plot tomorrow. I dread #2 & #3. The #4 should be softer.

Okay, glad I found this thread. I have absolutely ZERO experience dong any sort of planting/food plots, but I certainly want to start. We have 800 acres high fence and there is plenty of spots where I can do food plots.

Where is the best source to turn to for information? I live in the Dallas area and the ranch is near Abilene so I need to figure out how to make this work. We have tractors and such, just not the know-how to get it going.

Any ideas?

There are plenty of threads on here that will tell you all you need to know. QDMA also has a lot of articles and videos on the subject.

Basically, break up the ground with disk or tiller. Broadcast seed. Drag to cover, and pray for rain. A soil test is recommended and you can fertilize according to your soil test results. It can get more involved, but what I described is simple and yields great results..........depending on rain.

This pretty well covers the basics, but I'll add one thing. Well, two things. A soil test is not only recommended, it's almost mandatory for success. Amend your soil accordingly and use the fertilizer as recommended. The other thing is to plant what will thrive in the moisture you normally have. We can grow almost anything in ETexas, but your choices are probably gonna be more limited.

QDMA website is a good place to start. They have several crop profiles that you can study. Good luck !

I got about 3 acres planted on my place yesterday. I planted Real World RR beans in two one acre plots where I've had some severe weeds problems and IC peas in two other smaller plots. I got these plots disced up Wednesday and put out 1,050 lb. of fertilizer and almost 200 lb. of seed yesterday. I was tired ! Hope the cuss-ed hogs didn't eat up my seed last night

My clover doesn't look near as good as Big Bone's does, but it will look better after I spray it next week. It's the green strip between the plots. Real World beans in the far plot, IC peas in the close one.

Valid additions for sure.

I'm fortunate to have neutral soil.

Perfect timing on the planting. I wanted to plant earlier this week, but decided to cut, rake and bale all of this winter wheat and oats, along with some 2' tall grain rye mixed in. I figured it would take some doing to get all of this stuff amended in, so I'm going to get most of it out of here.

Great thread Brandon. Will not be able to get anything done this spring, but I want to do some in the fall. My spot at the new lease is in a pasture bottom along a hardwood creek. I could plant ALOT, I plan to do a good bit. Have you used the Turner Seeds before? Good results? Do they ship?

There is no herbicide to cover all that , just like Low Fence said. That is one problem planting a blend as well as fertilizer selection. The best you can hope for is your seed to get taller than the weeds and block them out.

There is selective herbicides but they will kill grass or broad leaf or both.

Arrest Max (Clethodim) I think would be safe for all except maybe the Millet.. so would be up to you if you tried it. I'm just going by product label, no real world experience but thought that may help. I plan to use it in a few weeks on my Powerplant and additional I/C Peas, Lab Lab, and soybeans once they get up 3-4"

Amend your soil accordingly and use the fertilizer as recommended. The other thing is to plant what will thrive in the moisture you normally have. We can grow almost anything in ETexas, but your choices are probably gonna be more limited.

QDMA website is a good place to start. They have several crop profiles that you can study. Good luck !
Dang boy, you been humpin! Are you all planted?

We got a little rain but nuttin like y'all got. I got some dove weed coming in a few places and johnson grass. Got my Basagran ready for some Nutsedge, but I will try a few spots to see how it affect peas.

Going hog hunting tomorrow night, I am really thinking about one of them big corral hog traps with drop down door.

Felt like humpin' to this old man ! Yesterday was the first good days work I've put in for a while ! I have one more plot, about an acre or less, to disc and plant Monday. Then it's off to Trinity Co. to plant a 1.75 acre plot with sunn hemp and a few IC peas. I'm planting the peas in there to "train" the deer to eat the sunn hemp. We'll see how that works

I don't know how much rain we got at Mt. Enterprise, but .5" would have suited me. I had plenty of moisture right under the surface. Pretty sure we got more than that, but I'll find out tomorrow night when I try to assassinate some more swine.

I noticed a little nutsedge on the side of one of my bean plots when I sprayed gly last week, and I plan to plant clover there this fall, so I went ahead and hit it with gly. That stuff is tough to kill. Good luck with it !

I think cleth will kill sorghum also. Not that I've tried it, but Whitetail Institute supposedly replaced the milo in one of their blends and substituted sunn hemp so it could be sprayed with cleth. I would spot spray and see before I sprayed the whole plot.

Yep I meant to say millet and sorghum. Good catch.
