Food Plot Myths Busted: Why Your Clover Doesn’t Need Mowing and Brassicas Don’t Get Sweeter After a Frost

August 11, 2021 By: NDA Staff

In this episode of the Deer Season 365 podcast we are talking with Mark Turner, a PhD candidate at the University of Tennessee working under Dr. Craig Harper. Mark and Brian discuss some of the food plot related research that Mark has been involved in, with specific emphasis on one looking at whether perennial food plots benefit from summer mowing and another that looked at whether brassicas actually get sweeter after a period of cold weather. You may be surprised at what they discovered! If you are a food plot enthusiast, this episode is for you!
