Cost for custom food plots


Well-known member
My farmer buddy won’t charge me going rates…what is the going rate per acre for disking? Planting food plots? Also, cost per acre for milo
seed? Or is it better to think per LB? I think he planned 10lbs per acre..sound right? Thx!

Thx…I was gonna give $25/acre for each round of disking and planting…3 rounds total, plus the cost of the seed.
$20-25 is pretty common but seed costs could vary widely depending what he planted for you. You may have to be sneaky and find that out. True grain milo could run around couple hundred a bag where wildlife forage sorghum could be under $50/bag.
