Wilder Grain Sorghum - Annual
Wilder Grain Sorghum is an early maturing sorghum reaching mid-bloom at about 40-50 days after emergence. It is a short, fast maturing sorghum, and it will produce heads with seeds in 90 days or less. A mature plant will be 26-30" tall with seed becoming marginally palatable and edible at maturity. This sorghum makes excellent seed for all game birds, including quail, turkey, pheasants, doves and ducks. Deer will also feed heavily on the grain in fall and winter. This type of Sorghum is a most valuable source of winter food for quail and other wildlife.. The plants will tiller and keep producing additional heads as long as there is moisture until frost.
