What is Land Management? Land management is the process by which the resources of land are put to good effect. It covers all activities concerned with the management of land as a resource both from an environmental and from an economic perspective. It can include farming, deer population management, small game and bird management.
Where to Begin?
Finding the correct spot for a food plot can be tricky. Where do you want to plant? Where do you want to put your stand or stands? Do you have easy access to your stands without disturbing what could possibly be in your plot?
Once you find the spot you want, you need to start cutting trails to get to the plot. These trails will help you in a couple ways. It will provide access to the plot for your equipment as well as a walking trail to the plot.
Once you find the spot and you have your trails cut, it’s time to start mowing and trimming the spot. You can do this with a tractor and brush cutter, an ATV with a brush cutting attachment.
If you do not have access it is doable with a weed eater, yes it will take you a while, but it’s worth it!
Till the Plot
So you have cut your trails, prepped your area, now what? Now it’s time to till the plot. Tilling the plot is a tedious activity, but a very important part to growing a food plot.
There are a few different ways you can accomplish this aspect of plotting. If you have a tractor or an ATV at your disposal, this is by far the easiest way to accomplish your goal. However, if you do not, you can use a garden tiller. Again, this will take a while (such as using a weed eater) but it is completely doable.
What to Plant?
Choosing a desired crop for your plot can be confusing. If you ask 10 people, you will get 10 different answers.
The best advice that I can give you is to research your area, see what grows best in your area. Some areas grow turnips and radishes better than others. Some areas grow beans fantastically!
The best part is watching all of your hard work come together!!
