Not sure where to put this, but coming home from the Meet and Greet show near Warsaw, In were some feilds that looke like had brand new corn growing in them. But, at same time looked fresh plowed. Rows were real neat and nice black dirt, but little corn plants about 8" tall growing in whole field. SO, what's that about? Did someone try to replant corn and it didn't take in dry weather and NOW starts growing since we've had some rains?? Or would farmer plant that just to plow under for enrichment?? Sure seemed weird.

It might of been sorghum, I can't imagine planting corn late, it's way to expensive to plow under.

Local farmer planted sorghum here in one of his fields in July. I thought it was corn at first, until the head started developing. It never got all that tall, around 2 feet, and I saw he had just harvested some this week.

I was thinking sorghum too , I plant that for mulch in the garden and now have winter wheat growing in that spot .Thought it wasn't able to grow when it got cold . If so I might have been able to let mine grow for a few more weeks , Al
