Havent checked in in a while, so first off hows everyone doin, second anybody else gearin up for spring planting? Quite a few of us around here have started cultivatin ground due to the warmer than usual temps. Couple growers even have planted some acres of corn already. As things are on my farm, applied a couple of burn down applications and started workin some ground, workin a few more acres tomorow after class. But just out of curiosity, whats evryone plantin this spring whether its 1/4 acre or 1400 acres? Good luck to everyone this plantin season and hope everyone has a safe one!!

We have about 120 acres. We also have worked some ground, but nothing has been planted yet. We usually plant half corn and half soybeans. We are just grain farmers, so no need for hay or wheat. Hope everyone has a great season tho!

Spring is very busy for us. Ive been in a tree program since 2008 with the state so Ive planted thousands of trees/shrubs here on the farm and this year is no different.
Hazelnuts, plums, and persimmons are the main focus this year.
I also have 14 acres to plant in native warm season grasses for my crp program.
We always have a garden as well.

We will be planting a nice variety as usual. The one property has four different food plots and each will be a little different. I've had great luck with the Antler King products over the years so that is what we will be using again this year.
One plot will be the Trophy Clover, another will be Red Zone (which contains soybeans, peas, buckwheat and sunflowers), another to be Honey Hole (which includes rape and a variety of turnips) and finally the last will be Fall, Winter, Spring (which includes winter peas and winter rye).
I have found giving them a variety really keeps the deer there all season. It also helps the food plots not get pounded by the deer.
