We put in a field last year the first of july,and it came up pretty good,we didnt have much rain for the first month and i figured it was a dead cause. We had a good rain a month later and it got hot! I didnt check on the fileld for a week,was i surprised,i grew 2 feet !!! We cut it on the 8th week and averaged around 3 ton and then we cut it right after a frost 6 weeks later and got another 2 ton. We seeded it with a brillion seeder at 10lbs an acre. We also put on 40lbs of nitrogen at plant. We did find it is a real soft and very palatable. Its a little hard to dry cause its stem are so fine,so use your moisture tester.
