How many of you plant corn as a food plot?
We are looking at putting corn in as a food plot for next year, for protien and late season food.
To give you a little background we have about 100 acres of alfalfa, 4 acres of clover and chickory and 1 acre of brassica. We are looking to put in about 5 acres of corn but do not have a corn planter. We have been pricing one out and have a few leads. They are not cheap and I have seen a few articles on broadcast spreading the seed and rolling over it instead of drilling it we have planted the rest of our seed that way with great success. Has anyone ever planted corn this way? If so what type of success did you have?
We had talked about renting a piece of equipment but no luck finding anything to rent. We also talked about having a local farmer come in but we are concerened that we will be competing for his time and it is only 5 acres and it really could not be worth them coming in and would be realy expensive.
Feedback would be great
