Planting Grain Sourgum

Asked April 28, 2014, 5:19 PM EDT

Good day,

I am interested in planting a variety of grain sourgum on my land. The main interests for planting is to attract Doves for dove season as well as harvesting the crop. Ideally, I am looking for a variety that is fit for the milican/college station area. Qualities desired include: high yield, non-gmo, low water input and disease resistant. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
David Smith

Grain sorghum (milo) is more tolerant of hot & dry conditions than other crops grown in the Brazos Valley. There are several seed companies offering a range products that would more than likely fit your goals. Please e-mail if you have specific questions. c-tittle@tamu.edu
