      Hybrid Grain Sorghum - Wild Game Food (WGF)


      WGF sorghum is a type of sorghum bred to be more successful at feeding wild game animals such as deer, turkey, dove, and quail. Traditionally, It had a higher sugar content and softer grain than traditional sorghum varieties making it more attractive to these animals. 

      WGF sorghum was first developed by the USDA's Agricultural Research Service in the 1980s as a way to provide a nutritious food source for wild game animals. Today, there are many different varieties of WGF sorghum available, each with its own specific traits and benefits. Some varieties are designed to be more drought-tolerant, while others are more resistant to pests and diseases.

      Our WGF is a high tannin red grain hybrid sorghum. High tannins discourage plant consumption while the sorghum plant is growing allowing the plant to focus its resources on growth and then seed production. This is especially useful in bird food plots with higher grazing and browse pressure, such as white tail deer, as it discourage use of the sorghum until seed maturity.
