Egyptian Wheat is a member of the sorghum family and produces long, slender stalks that reach 7 to 10 feet in height with large seed heads. Long relatively narrow plots are preferable when used as a food plot barrier. Its tall growth structure provides protective cover where wildlife can feed while remaining safe from detection. Plots must be replanted each year, although some seeds from the last growing season may sprout the following year. Egyptian wheat matures late providing additional food and cover for wildlife. Plant after danger of frost has passed, best on fertile well-drained sites receiving full or lightly filtered sunlight, grows poorly in excessively drained sandy soils.
