Food Plot 2 - Hancock WGF Dwarf Sorghum


Utilization based on game camera survey on this crop choice + evidence of use

Growth Results

I am a total newbie when it comes to Sorghum. I didn't even know how it comes up and matures. I spent weeks wondering if I planted Sudan or sileage sorghum as no grain was present anywhere. Then one weekend the stalks started splitting and I realized how it matured. The dough-stage seed heads were impressive and the entire field came up fantastic.

Activity Results

I don't think my deer herd knew what it was. The seed heads turned hard and virtually nothing was touching it. Then in mid-October I came back to hunt it and half the field was wiped out. Within three weeks, the entire .5 acre plot was consumed by deer.

Comments

The jury's out whether I would plant this again. It was very easy to plant and produced a good amount of food. But there appears to be better plot varieties available that provide more tonnage per acre.
