What advice do you guys have for food plots in marsh ground that may flood from time to time.
Crop land is so valuable in WI that the only places I can get for food plots is the leftover garbage land. I don't need the food source until late fall after all the regular crops are harvested.

 
Hm, that's a tough choice I'm not really sure.  I bet it would depend on how long it's under water and how wet it stays throughout the year...Great question.

Lime, fertilizer, and weed control all work together.  One without the other two isn't going to get your plot to it's maximum condition.
 
Love to do the soil tests, they get pretty detailed.  Just make sure to advise the people doing the testing what you'll be growing.  Recommendations for fertilizer will change based upon the crop.
