What are the rules and regulations on planting food plots?

I specifically want to know if it is legal to plant food plots on public lands. But the complete rules and regulations on food plots would be even more welcome.

Answer: 

It is illegal to plant any type of foodplot on public lands without the permission of the land management agency responsible for the property.  I am unaware of any occasion in which a public land management agency has given approval to a private individual to plant a food plot on public lands, so I do not know the likely hood of this being successful.

Additional items to take into consideration when dealing with foodplots are ensuring they are managed in a way that does not conflict with state or federal baiting laws, or promote or introduce noxious or invasive weeds/species.
