Excellent standability and drought tolerance.The heads of the sorghum can be harvested for livestock and bird feed, or left standing to attract birds during winter months.
Plant seeds 1 inch deep, 3 inches apart when soil temperatures reach 55-60°F. If using as a living fence, sow in a row right next to your beans. Best if sown by the end of May. Will produce mature grain in 100-110 days.
