Norm Haley with Wildlife Food Plots and Early Successional Plants

Are you looking to take that old pasture or hayfield and convert it to the turkey nesting/brooding area and deer cover/browse that your property is lacking? The Alabama Cooperative Extension System Old Field Renovation & Early Successional Vegetation Management for Wildlife Enhancement video series will help you do just that.

This four-part series outlines what it takes to replace non-native, undesirable, warm- and cool-season perennial grasses on your property. These grasses are replaced with early successional plant communities that are dominated by native beneficials that provide the food and cover for deer and turkey that so many properties lack. View the series playlist at www.aces.edu/go/oldfieldrenovation.
