Egyptian wheat is a member of the sorghum family but is not a favored food for whitetails. We want the plot screen to conceal the area so not attracting the deer is an important attribute. We want the deer to hold tight in the food plot and keep their distance from the food plot screen.

Egyptian wheat grows quickly to a height of 10 feet. This tall thick shield works pefect in all terrains.

Check your ag extension office and other resources for perfect planning dates but Egyptian Wheat can be planted from April to June. This will give the plant plenty of time to mature and establish a screen prior to September or October hunting seasons.
