View Full Version : First time food plot also

June 6th, 2010, 02:11 PM
I have established a small food plot with different clovers and some rape and chicory. Just wondering if I need to maintain it by mowing if weeds are not a problem?

Rape may not appreciate mowing, I'm not sure. But the clover definitely will. Mowing will keep the clover in a vegetative state, meaning it will be continuously adding new growth. New growth is tender and more appealing to deer, so by all means keep the clover mowed.

To about six inches.
