Rober said:I planted turnips,rape and austrian peas 2 years ago in my food plot. It did very well with turnips the size of softballs. It was planted out in an open field and we planted it the last week of July. It was outside of Oswayo so if you around Coudy that timeline should be o.k. Everything stayed green until December.
Not sure how it will do in the woods, but if the soil is ok and it gets water and sunlight it should be ok
im gonna try one just to see how well it will do. dont worry i wont be suprised if it doesnt do well.Dutch said:Man, you will need to lime the heck out of those soils up there if they are in the woods. Typical pH for woods soil up there is around 4-4.5. I doubt you'll be able to plant a crop this fall.
I plant my brassica in Potter between the 20th and 23rd of July every year. Has worked well for me.
