I plan to put in my first food plots this spring on a 100-acre property. It's in SE Ohio, so very hilly. Soils are decent. For now, I'm planning to start with clover - probably 2 acres in 3 different plots, which I'm hoping to frost seed in late February or March, depending on the weather. I have a few questions: 1) Has anyone had success with typical ag seed for their clover? I don't doubt that the seed offered by the various food plot specialists has benefits for the deer, but it's about 4 times more expensive than the stuff I can buy at the local feed and seed mill. If anyone has experience with ag seed - is there a specific variety of clover you would recommend? My preference would be one that fills in gaps well. 2) I have a good pH meter, so I can check the soil pH. Is a soil test for nutrients essential? I say that because I'd need a separate test for each of the plots (they're at some distance from each other), and tests run about $20/each, so that's $60. A bag of fertilizer is a lot less. Thanks for the assistance!
