17 tons????? seed or what. That is more than a ton to the acre. Is this a misprint.cowboyup216":si3kouft said:Never heard of it. Please enlighten us. My old stand by tried and true is Sudex.
A couple days ago I put out 17 tons of Sudex on a 12 acre tract and fertilized it with 300 pounds of triple 19 per acre. We got a good rain the last couple days and its already up and at em and the whole field looks like dog hair right now lol. I figure if we keep getting these rain showers like we have been off and on here recently it ought to hopefully make me 60-70 bales off that 12 acre tract course that is an estimate lol

I cut and bale silaged our first field the other day, looks impressive considering we are in a severe drought.

I have found best results by drilling it in and then going over it with triple 19 300 pounds per acre. Seems like when I broadcast the fertilizer and the sudex seed together it doesnt give as good a stand. It is like the fertilizer cancels out the sudex seed.
Also, from that link I posted according to what I have been reading Teff is basically like a cross between alfalfa and wheat kind of similar but kind of not.
I saw a picture of the teff grass and it looked like an alfalfa stand. The people compared it to wheat. Said only thing that yields more is Alfalfa.
