i have a small food plot that has been growing for about a month and starting to look good.

Do you add a liquid fertilizer and if so, what do you use?

Thanks, FullDraw55

I also use 13 13 13, 200lbs per acre. But I fertilize at the same time I plant.
Plow, put out fertilizer, level out with harrow, drill seed in.

Triple 13 here as well, in E TX sandy loam. I went with 350 lbs per acre. Half disked in right before planting, the other half was broadcasted immediately after seed was thrown. Then ran a drag over it.
