A Food Plot Preparation Masterclass (Part 1) With Mark Turner

April 5, 2023 By: Brian Grossman

If you’re a food plotter, or just interested in learning more about food plots, then you’re going to love this week’s episode. We’re talking with Mark Turner, who’s seeking his doctoral degree researching food plots at the University of Tennessee, about all things food plot preparation — from site selection to soil tests, soil amendments, weed control, planting techniques, and much more. Mark gets so deep into the subject, that we’re calling this Part 1 because we’re going to have to get him back on later this year to really finish out the food plot discussion!
