Early Grain Sorghum
- 50# bag
- Grain sorghum is also called "milo". We sell a "dwarf" or short variety.
- For food plots, early grain sorghum is a favorite of pheasant farms because it provides a good winter food source and cover for the birds, making it a great challenge for the hunter and dog.
- Early grain sorghum is a summer annual with very good seedling vigor and high stalk sugars. However, should not be planted until ground temperatures reach 55-60 degrees.
- For beef and dairy cattle, milo and soybeans are often mixed together (10/90 mix) and sown at 150 lbs per acre to produce silage. This combination can be harvested within 60-110 days of planting.
- Seeding rate: 25-30 lbs per acre. In mixtures with soybeans: 15-20 lbs per acre.
- Seeding Depth: 1" to 1.5" in a well prepared, firm seedbed.
