    A perennial clover mix would be a good choice. Be sure to take a soil sample, and amend your soil to the soil sample's recommendations. I also recommend the book "Quality Food Plots" (qdma.com/shop/quality-food-plots-your-guide-to-better-deer-and-better-deer-hunting) as it will give recommendations on how to maintain you clover plot for several years before it would need to be replanted. If well maintained, you can get about 5+ years out of a good clover plot.

      If you're mostly interested in turkeys, I'd suggest "chufa", especially in a loose, sandy loam. Bioguy is right, whatever you select, start with a soil analysis first. Make soil amendments as needed before planting.

        You guys must have a better class of turkeys where you hunt. Mine just eat the corn out of the fresh cow pies!

          We plant Sorghum by seeds it for Deer and Doves but Turkeys just eat the Heck out of it.

            In this months F&S there is an ad for a seeded roll of various types of clover. Just unroll it on your prepared soil and you are ready to go. $40 to cover 100sq'. might be worth a try.

              I am planning a sunflower and millet plot for doves that I am sure will attract the turkeys this fall. As stated above, you can't go wrong with chufa either.
