Place food plots at pinch points along travel routes. Consider stand locations, prevailing winds, direction and amount of sunlight, and terrain features such as swamps or hills that create funnels or corridors.
If you are carving a plot out of woods, you may need to hire out since most of us ladies seldom have bulldozers or backhoes. Once your plot is cleared of trees and brush, your next steps are--
1. Weeding. Spray with a Roundup or Glystar type herbicide and wait a week. In the meantime, clear out rocks and branches.
2. Disking. Before you can take a Ph reading, and to break up the soil, heavy disking is needed. If you don't have a disk, hire out. Get a Ph kit from any outdoor or farm store.
3. Sweetening. If your soil is too acid, add pelletized lime. Spread the lime and fertilizer, and disk both into the soil. Lime can take six months to work, so plan for that. If you cannot disk, do a deep drag harrow (see photo).
4. Flattening and Preparing. Disking leaves soil very rough. Use the deep tine side and drag harrow the plot in a cross-hatch pattern six times. Do the deep harrow right before you plant so the moisture in the soil keeps the dust down.
