I have a few fields that some local ranchers let me use for hunting. I want to get these guys to plant (or let me plant) corn in their field. I would like to plant 20 or 40 acres of corn and curious what the cost would be. These fields are just used for cattle presently. I want to start talking to these guys now so that next season I will have everything rolling. I need to know how much the seed costs, the process of planting the corn, how to care for the corn when its growing (fertilizer, water, etc.), and the best way to harvest the corn to attract waterfowl. If any of you have any experience raising corn for food plots, please let me know what I am possibly getting myself into. Also let me know what you pay a farmer to do this on 20 or 40 acres.
