Default food plot advice?

I have a private lot of woods that I hunt... has good features to it including an open field right in the middle of everything... its about 150 yards long and 100 yards wide... was thinking about starting some kind of food plot there... I'm not to educated on food plots but would like to give this a go if possible... a tractor and water source other than rain is pretty much out of the question... was looking for a product to just simply disburse on the field and hope for the best... any ideas on products that work like this and can this even be done? Thanks guys

whitetail institute has aproduct called throw n grow. that may work for ya. think its a clover blend.

im no expert on plots.

do some research you may want to put a weed killer down (early mid spring) than some lime. than before a good rain put the seed down.

one thing i read was plant the field in increments. rather than plant all at same time and have the field come full circle(bloom) at the same time. break your plot down into 4 or 5 quadrants. plant them 2-3 weeks apart. it will give the critters a longer time period for a food source. put the latest plot closest to your stand/hunting season.

Thank guys for your input... w8n I appreciate your offer but it's not that I don't have access to a tractor or farm equipment I just literally can't get back there with a tractor... there's no roads or paths big enough for one.

Sounds like you need a quad with disks on it and a spreader

i'd do half the field in the spring and the other half in mid summer.

weed killer and lime first before all that.
