Hello, I was curious about applying Plot Start (or lime) to food plots that are being frost seeded. I got soil testing  done and came up with a pH of just over 7 and was wondering if the Plot Start would still be effective to seed that has already been broadcast onto the soil.

PlotStart sprayed on existing but dormant clover plots, or when frost seeded works perfectly to provide more calcium and nutrients to the soil before spring green up. Apply PlotStart on the soil at 2.5 gallons per acre, then frost seed the clover over the same day. When the temperatures thaw the soil, both the PlotStart and clover seed will spruce the plot up for a great looking plot. When it is time to spray herbicides, don’t forget about mixing PlotBoost in the solution to help the clover out compete the weeds!
