A lot of people think that once done, a food plot doesn’t require servicing. If nothing is done, weeds will slowly take control without you noticing it. For the clover fields, there is a pesticide for grass but once again, the environmental question arises and it might become disturbing.
Mechanically, by cutting your clover once or twice during the year and by having sowed a greater ratio of seeds per acre, you will go further without the environmental risks. Furthermore, cutting your clover has a stimulative effect on the plant which reacts positively by growing more rapidly, more densely and with more proteins, which is beneficial to deers.
Have a good day. Louis
