Hi guys, we finally signed a lease in Ohio this past weekend and we found a few perfect 1/4 acre clearings for food plots. Since we don't have the equipment we were thinking about taking rototillers to a couple of the spots and tilling it up. We tested the soil and it is just about right (we're going to add the needed lime and fertilizer). We were thinking about turnip/rape and winter wheat strips so the winter wheat can take some of the grazing. These spots are perfect due to their close proximity to bedding areas, thick cover, water sources, oaks, and prevailing wind. We were amazed at the locations! If we get these established they will be killing spots.

We know this is going to be time consuming but does anybody have any advice on using hand tools for these seeds and planting in strips? Any advice will help! Thanks.

Sam

yeah we know it will be time consuming but between the 3 of us we have access to 4 roto tillers ha! The farmer said if he is there he will till up the top field but the 1/4 acre bottom field will be an issue so we are looking at at least one 1/4 field done by "hand." Wish me luck!
