    Seeding Rate:
    Dryland: 10-25 lbs./acre. Seeds per square foot: 4-9
    Irrigated: 25-60 lbs./acre. Seeds per square foot: 9-22

    Seeding Depth:
    Planting depth should be 1″

    Harvest:
    Harvest 62-70 days after seeding. Protein will decline as harvest is delayed, but energy will increase upon heading due to continued sugar production.
