sometimes you can disk the ground and get the correct disturbance at the right time in order to get growth of good plants. Most people have perennial smartweed which has a small white flowering bloom. Everyone says smartweed is the bees knees and im sure ducks get some value from this. But, what you want to strive for is the annual smartweed that produces a larger pinkish color bloom. deer and hogs wont mess with it, although ive had some messed up because the hogs were rooting about eighteen inches deep in a couple areas, but they typically don't eat it like they will millet. Spraying the area with 24d can help release good growth, but it's deadly to smartweed. The earlier(march&april) the ground disturbance, the more response you will get from smartweed and the sort. A later disturbance into june will usually yield more grasses and sedges. All of which are good. when you do spring disking, if you leave it chunky, this will often times lead to unwanted things like cocklebur, native bottom hibiscus, etc. Disk up good, and try to time it where it will rain on it in the following few days. most of the seeds you need are already in the dirt. if you need to plant it, the seeds for native plants like that get pretty expensive. kester's nursery has a good variety, but you may be better of trying to harvest some in the wild depending how big of an area you're trying to do.
