Dwarf Sorghum has a short, sturdy, broad-leafed stem and a substantial seed-head, providing birds with warm cover throughout the shooting season.
Often sown as a companion to maize with the bulkier, shorter sorghum plants giving protection to the birds below the taller growing maize plants.
Sorghum is a non-cob producing maize like plant which will provide cover throughout the shooting season. It thrives best in warm, sunny growing conditions and therefore is suited to the more southerly regions of the UK. It is a very slow establishing plant that does not begin to flourish until late July.
