Depending on your equipment availability you may do the following procedures. The first is the fastest and easiest, but is not as optimum as the second scenario.
1. Step off your plot size (34 X 34 steps approx. for 1/4 acre square) or any combination if doing two 1/8 acre plots... Next spray the area with a total plant killer of your choice. If green plants still exist after 1-2 weeks re-spray to ensure a good kill. Once vegetation is brown, remove dead vegetation to expose bare dirt. If seeds are broadcast on dead vegetation and are unable to have good seed to soil contact, germination and growth will NOT happen no matter what seed you plant. Once vegetation is removed by whatever means you find easiest, you are ready to either hand broadcast EVENLY, or put in a hand held seed spinning broadcaster or wheeled spreader following spreader/broadcaster instructions for proper coverage. Next, if you are going to use our Plot Fertilizer/Supplement that you can supplement your deer through your food plot, this would be the time to broadcast it out in the same manner. Once all spreading is complete, it would be best if you can at least rake/scratch seed in a bit to aid in seed to soil contact, it not, your done and let nature take its course.
2 The best way to get started planting your food plot is to step off your plot in the area you are wanting to put it. A 1/4 acre is 10,890 sq ft or approximately 104 ft X 104 ft or 34.6 X 34.6 yards (34 big steps each way to be conservative). Next step would be to spray and kill the area that you marked off where you are wanting to plant your plot. Once all vegetation is brown, do your best to clear off the dead vegetation if it is to thick to till in. If your area is easily accessed, the next step would be to lightly till the plot as to loosen the dirt and prepare an adequate seed bed. Once tilled, begin broadcasting your plot seed, preferably with some type of spinner broadcast device that is either hand held or wheeled for optimum, even seed distribution. Hand spreading will work if you do not have a seed broadcaster as long as it is spread out EVENLY. Next, if you are going to use our Plot Fertilizer/Supplement that you can supplement your deer through your food plot, this would be the time to broadcast it out in the same manner. Once all spreading is complete,simple drag plot with atv and drag or hand rake to help ensure seed is buried and lightly pack with atv wheels to ensure great seed to soil contact.
Remember once your plot is planted, adequate moisture (rain/irrigation) is a critical limiting factor that can make or break any plot, no matter the brand. Also soil type, soil pH, soil condition, shade... are also limiting factors that can affect plot success, no matter the plot brand. Just FYI.
