    I would really be interested in a per acre cost to plant. Also looking forward to how well the doves like/use it.

    Probably $200 an acre? The biggest expense by far was the fertilizer. Dual Magnum is cheap. The glyphosate is expensive this year but is usually cheap. The seed was $110 for a 50 lb bag.

    On a “normal” year I bet you could get by with $150 an acre max.

    I can see why one guy said to plant every other row. That’ll be about like hunting next to soybean field trying to find birds.

    Shouldn't be too bad. It makes for good hunter cover though. The stalks should be dead and leaf cover gone or light by late season, which is when this stuff shines.

    Leave 3 rows standing for blind positions. Make sure folks don't shoot the low birds that are going to dive bomb your benne. Yall should have a great shoot over that stuff. Looks great. Congrats!!

    I'm really looking forward to your bird reports this season because I have considered planting benne. I've bookmarked this thread for reference next planting season. I appreciate you posting the planting details.

    A lot of people I've seen plant benne and sunflowers in sections. Shoot over sunflowers the first split and gradually cut em. By the second or third split, the benne is king. They leave bands a few yards wide.

    My experience has been deer leave it alone until well after the seed matured. Then they will eat the leaves.
