    Clover plot is loaded with these. Not sure if it is a weed or what and if it is a week how to get it under control?

    Looks like turnips bolting, if you had them planted they're flowering to produce seed.

    If you didn't plant some sort of brassica then it's a wild mustard. I don't worry about it in food plots. I'd rather have a few weeds than to have all the forage coated with chemical for deer to browse. If I was concerned over it I'd mow it off.

    The ones in my plot have more stem to them but yes I had a turnip and brassica mix there last fall and frost seeded in some clover.

    If you had a brassica mix than that is more than likely rape. Which from experience is a nasty plant to get rid of, mowing won't always do the trick. Also if it goes to seed ...wow!
