It can be a good cash crop depending on the soil type of the ground being used. Taking a soil sample is the first place to start before recommendations can be made. Economic value cannot be determined at this time. For more information, stop by the Russell Co. Extension Office, Monday-Friday 7:30am to 4:00pm CT.
