    Here is info from Dbltree's Corner on food plot rotation:

    Dbltree seed mix and rotation

    Plant ALL in one plot in strips or blocks

    Alice, Kopu II, Durana (or comparable) white clover 10% of plot, sow at 6#'s per acre with the rye combination in the fall or in the spring with oats and berseem clover. Correct Ph and P&K with soil tests

    Brassicas in 45% of plot

    Purple Top Turnips 3#

    Dwarf Essex Rape 2#

    GroundHog Forage radish 5#

    Plant in mid to late July in most Midwest states, or 60-90 days before your first killing frost, Use 200#'s of 46-0-0 urea and 400#'s of 6-28-28 per acre. Follow the dead brassicas with oats and berseem or crimson clover in mid spring at 60#'s oats and 12-15#'s berseem clover and/or crimson and/or 50#'s of chickling vetch)

    Cereal Grain combo in 45% of plot...we use 50# each rye, oats and peas along with radish and clover seed all planted in half of each feeding area

    Winter rye 50-80#'s per acre (56#'s = a bushel)

    Spring oats 50-120#'s per acre (32#'s = a bushel)

    Frostmaster Winter Peas or 4010/6040 Forage peas 20-80#'s per acre

    Red Clover 8-12#'s per acre or white clover at 6#'s per acre (or 20-40 pounds hairy vetch and 20-30#'s crimson clover on sandy soils)

    Groundhog Forage Radish 5#'s per acre

    Plant in late August to early September, if following well fertilized brassicas use 100 - 200#'s of urea, if starting a new plot add 400#'s of 6-28-28 but for best results soil test and add only what is necessary.

    Rotate the brassicas and rye combo each year

    End of July for Brassicas.... the one exception being you CAN plant radishes much later if going straight radish. I do that into yellowing beans with great results.

    First week of September for cereal grains.

    When broadcasting in radishes when the beans go yellow I assume you are using Ground Hogs? If not what are you using?

    any forage radish will work. daikon is another popular radish you will find. but im pretty sure a forage radish is a forage radish, no matter what name it uses

    I have kicked sewing in over my beans for years. What is the thoughts on radishes or winter rye giving the most tonnage in this kind of scenario? I have been fortunate that my beans make it to the end of late muzzle but, I am not satisfied with that and want food thru March at least.

    I do both. Rye will give you food thru April. Radishes, rye, standing beans. I can't think of a better plot.

    Both will improve your soil. I do winter rye in beans but radish sounds good also.

    Giod advice and only would add from my experience in central iowa (hwy. 30). We have moved a few days or week earlier depending if rain in forecast(which appears important for a good stand)with great results also where we are. Play the timing with weather for best results in my opinion.
    Just sprayed out plots yesterday with glyphosate-liberty(to kill clover/weeds) and will lightly till prior to broadcasting our seeds, and finish by rolling or dragging in. Now just need a nice rain last week of July
