The fine print or instructions for many food plot blends suggests a light application of 34-0-0 when the plants are about 4" tall.


If your plants are browsed heavily, those in your exclusion cage will tell you when it's time. You do use exclusion cages, right?

Well, I did manage to get a hundred pounds of winter wheat out, together with 400 #s of fertilizer, right before Saturday’s rain! Hope it does better than the oats that burned up.
They’re calling for more rain tue here, so this may do well.

now I'm wishing I had also planted the 150#'s of OATS too - finally some decent rain to quell the parched soil!
