I'm very new to the food plot scene and was wondering if ya'll could help me identify what I have growing..
I know I planted wheat, oats, some kind of pea, and some other stuff in this mix I bought from the feed store.
Just curious whats coming up
I'm assuming the darker green plant above is some kind of weed but what about the broad leaf light green?

What are the longer plants coming in? Wheat or Oats

The last two are the same plant and I'm assuming some kind of pea?


Thanks for the help guys.

1st one looks like turnip.
2nd looks like possibly a milo, I think the leaf pattern looks to wide for JG

3rd is your winter peas.

A small millet would make sense, does resemble corn, leaves look off for some reason.

Zinc or possibly iron deficiency

Milo would make sense I didn't even think about that.
Everything seems to be growing so well right now but do ya'll recommend some kind of fertilizer I can spray on there?
All I did was disc, drag, spread seed, then drag again.

Looking at the plot condition as a whole I think it would be a very good idea to get a soil test and fertilize or look into it for next year.. It could be that the plants are coming up too good and stacked in quite tight.. plot still looks great though you hit it right with planting timing

They are all showing a very dominant yellowing in the grasses and not the legumes...

Really though saturated soil could be a big part of it too the way the rain has been coming in some places.. makes the roots job of pulling in N harder and it gets worse with cool snaps

Agree with NAV. It wouldn't hurt more than your wallet if you wanted to top dress it, but I would do it soon to allow the plants to get back up good (drive marks). I would definitely get a soil test sometime after Jan 1st, or a few months after you fertilize, so you know exactly where your dirt is, no point wasting $ on fertilizer numbers you don't need.

if you want to green it up fast spray some chelated iron over the top even with a backpack sprayer if it is a small plot

it will greet it up in a heart beat, but it will not cure a long term soil nutrient deficiency though if you have one

if you want a soil test Stephen F. Austin is faster than A&M usually and just as good
