Plant Bob oats, plant them about early oct to mid oct if you are not MLD, 2-3 weeks earlier if you are MLD.

depends on the area. I usually shred in mid-late August, plow & plant mid September out to mid Oct. Normally watch the weather forecast starting in early Sept. looking for one of the first cool fronts to push thru an area that shows to have decent moisture, plow & plant a few days to a week before it hits and pray for rain.

I usually do mainly oats (feed oats still get a good germination rate). I usually toss in some blackeyed peas around the edges. On my place in Burnet county (wildlife management improvement exemption) I do blended seeds per the recommendation of the biologist. Oats, triticale, peas, clover, turnip, wheat, hairy vetch, barvetch, chicory, milo mix and pumpkin. On the place in Fairfield (sandy), we did several plots in oats and one in wheat that all came up and produced well with the rains hitting shortly after planting and then continued every week or so for the next couple of months. We also put out 13-13-13 fertilizers on a couple to see if it made a difference, which is did and we will be doing that on all this coming fall. We really need to get several soil samples from the various plot locations, just never thought about it the right time.

I am in Goliad County. I usually shred about now and then disc up my plots to bank some moisture it if it rains. I usually wait till first week of October to plant due to heat and army worms. I have planted TAMU oats and mixed winter pea the past few years. This year I am going to seed in some Hubam an/or Madrid clover with it. If I can find some leftover cowpeas I have mixed them in my fall plantings in the past...great for archery season buck traffic...just have to make sure you don't get an early frost.
