The best advice I give guys for a fall planning is, whether it be radishes or a brassica blend with cereal grains, we’re looking to try to get those in a solid 45 to 60 days before your first average frost. That’s really easy find through Farmers Almanac, obviously, Google will help you out a ton on what your average frost date is. We want to make sure that I’ve got enough time to establish a really solid root system, and provide enough forage that will last you through the fall in the winter. There’s a little bit of a misconception that frost kill a lot of your fall food plots and that’s really not the case they just slow the growth process way down.
