I have a lease thatís about one mile west of lake Cisco in Eastland County. In years past I planted my food plots around September 15th to the 25th pending rain. I noticed most of the land owners have turned their fields already and in years past they did not do this until mid-October or later. I checked the 10 day forecast, 20to40% chance of rain all week and highs in the mid 80s.
It sure would be amazing to have the food plots looking good for bow season but I know there is a risk of armyworms and grasshoppers getting to them. I really donít think weíre going to have that random 100 degree+ day early September this year, so what are your thoughts on starting early?
Iíll be planting wheat, Oats, purple turnips, and Iím still debating on winter peas or not.
