Clover, wheat, oat and cereal rye has come to seed. Is there any benefit to mowing the plots? I’m talking maybe just to clip the seedlings not mow it to the ground.

I assume the seeds from the oat, wheat and rye are consumed by birds and rodents and what doesn’t get eaten just rots with the rains.

What do y’all do? 99% of fellas in our club just ignore their plots till fall planting time. I’m just wondering if I could do something different than them to make our plots more attractive. Thanks!

Don't cut this time of year with turkeys nesting. Just my opinion

on crimson clover you can leave it until august and mow and it will regenerate nicely. If it is white clover, you need to mow and spray it to keep the weeds in check once or twice during the summer and it will live and stay green year round. Just dont mow white clovers less than 6 inches tall during drought periods or it could die.
