We hunt north of Childress and looking to plant a good plot come Sept 1. This last weekend I cleaned the area in preparation for Sept. I have some good soil and think it is a good area. Does anyone have suggestions for what to plant in that area?
Think about what you're competing against.... 1000's of acres of winter wheat.
First year....turnips/beets and oats, second year oats and 1/2 the turnips or beets and make up the difference in alafafa...
Pretty soon your alafafa will take over, when that happens take out the turnips and just over seed in Late September with oats. Then by about year four the alafafa will start to fizzle out, go back and add turnips... It will be a cycle but your soil will get better and better.
