I have a large field of goatweed. Majority of the plants are 2 foot tall or taller. Birds are in and around the field, I've been seeing them on the fenceline daily.
How do I prepare the field for opening day? Leave it alone or shred/plow some under? I've heard the seeds won't drop until October. Is there a method to maximize it for the birds or should I just leave it alone? I was thinking shredding the tops would knock out some seed.
Have a 80 acre field, dumped the cows in end of June shredded the edges and an X across the field today. Seeing a good number of birds. On a side note caught 3 trespassers today and ran off about 4 more. Sure brazen with us working the field. Come the 1st no more warnings just arrest and prosecute. The Old Man Hates Trespassers.
