Egyptian wheat is member of the sorghum family and is known for its extreme height of 8-12 feet. Egyptian wheat provides some food value at the tassel, but is primarily used as a thick cover for wildlife. It can be used as a food plot screen and deer blind if planted more heavily. This crop prefers warm temperatures and moderate rainfall. To achieve desired height, fertilization maybe required.
