Quail Food Plot Seed Mix - Our quail food plot seed mix should be planted any time after the last chance of frost in the spring through the summer. Alyce Clover is a high protein summer sweet clover and is a heavy seed producer the fall. Sesbania is also a high protein legume with substantial seed production in the fall. Quail food plots should not only include seed producing species but also cover. Alyce Clover and Sesbania provide both seed and cover for quail. We added the millet to the mix to add variety and cover for the legumes. The millet will also serve as a summer feed for quail and help restrict grasses while the Clover and Sesbania slowly begin to grow.
Planting for Quail
Quail are more likely to utilize your food plot if they feel comfortable. Try not to plant food plots for quail in the wide open if possible. Planting around heavy cover, trees, short planted pines, palmetto flats will result in more food plot activity from your quail.
