First, thatnks to all of you who helped me with my last question. I am very new to planting food plots and your help has been very appreciated.

I have a 3/4 acre plot that I have plowed. My question is this: should I drag it (fence behind 4wheeler) before I plant the wheat/clover? Or, should I go ahead and spread the seed and then drag again with the 4wheeler? expecting some rain Sunday thru Wed of next week, so I would like to get it planted soon.

All the advice that you could give me would be very valuable.

Thanks again for your generosity in helping this ignorant new planter!

Plant the large grains at about 1/4 to no more than 1/2 inch deep, then drag. Spread your clovers on top of that and leave it. The small clover seeds generally only need soil contact to start. You may suffer a little predation on the seeds but it should be negligible.

Then if you plan on over seeding with clover for the Spring, do what we do here and over seed on a cold frosty morning toward the end of winter. It works great and the melting frost will provide moisture and also insure good soil contact.

Good Hunting
