We plant several plot acres of wheat or Triticale every year in East Texas. Also have one food plot that is in the river bottom (1.25 Acers) that has been planted for the last 15 yrs or so. Yes it was difficult to break up at first with a bottom plow , then disked again. But it is worth it. If you don't have a bottom or deep plow , you could just disk/Till it several times to break a few inches of top soil.
I am assuming this late in the game you are not doing a soil test so you should probably just dump lime to assure you have a high PH. Maybe add some 13-13-13 if you want but definitely dump 1/2 to 1 ton of lime per acre. Wheat will grow in less than a inch of cultivated/tilled soil. Its a pain to start a plot in bottom land but if you have access to equipment its not to bad and those bottom deer love a plot in the middle of the woods that they feel safe stepping into.
