That ol boy in that loader looks like he knows how to get a job done and move dirt
Plant some milo. It's cheap prolly won't head out but makes a nice cover.
Will that work being broadcasted? I don't want to screw up all my corn around there bringing in a planter. I need something I can broadcast that will turn golden brown to match the corn. I'll have plenty of corn stalks from other areas of the field, just need some golden brown grass or something else that will grow tall enough. I like the idea of vertical cover with corn stalks and all that. We did plant 6 rows of corn around the pit blind, but the way the gumbo looked, I doubt it grows very well at all.
Broadcast on mudflat. ATV spreader works great for this. As you drive over the muddy areas it helps get it "rooted" in the mud and off you go from there. I would put on any open spot and if you can scratch the surface and cover it up a bit will keep the seed from floating off should you get a big rain. Does not take much to get it to go. The DNR flies it on many of the areas in Iowa when they cannot get equipment into the mudflat areas. Good luck.
Egyptian wheat. Looks like corn. Grows much taller though. You can cut it to the corn stubble height and use it for brushing.
That's funny you mention that, as I was just looking at that thinking it might be a good option.
Guy at one of the refuges here told me they plant it because it looks just like corn to a duck and serves as a wind break that the birds get down into.
Does that seem to do ok being broadcasted? I don't need it grow perfect, just need some cover.
Id broadcast it and mix in cockleburrs
I've never planted it myself. I think Rex on the TN forum has planted it. I suspect on the WMA they used a drill for it.
