We are lacking broad leaf in our CRP nesting ground.  Broad leafs like alfalfa and clover are important to provide bugs for early nesting pheasant chicks.  We have good grasses now and we mixed alfalfa with the grass mix when we planted in 2015 but it didn’t come up.  Either poor seed or planted too deep.  Alfalfa and clover like to be planted around 1/2′ deep.  Our no-till drills we use have a hard time planting that shallow.  That’s why I’m replanting now while the grounds froze hopefully to keep it shallow allowing for a finish depth of 1/2′ or 3/4′ deep.  Should work.  The soil around the blade tracks should wash a little from snowmelt and rains this winter to cover what seed left exposed.  Hopefully everything pops up when the soil warms up next spring…  Just in time for nesting!
