The View Blocker blend is specifically designed to create an annual tall screen to block the view of your food plots from roads and neighbors. It includes four sorghum species that range from a 5′ tall, stout stemmed dwarf type to Egyptian Wheat and long season forage sorghum that can grow 10-12′ tall. The shorter and stouter species help hold the taller species up during the late winter cold weather. The ratio of species in the mix is designed to produce a screen that will last well into the winter/spring. View Blocker grows massive amounts of biomass while improving the soil’s health.
This product includes a packet of Micro Noc: Multi-Spectrum (OMRI approved). Packet size scales with the amount of seed.

View Blocker is best seeded using a no-till drill or other seeding device and placing seed at a depth of 3/4" - 1". It can also be broadcast into areas with minimal plant competition such as a new plot or one where a seedbed has recently been prepared. Light incorporation or dragging can help with seed to soil contact but don't cover seeds with more than 3/4” of soil.
View Blocker should be planted annually during the spring when the soil temperature at 2” deep at 9:00 AM is 60 degrees or warmer. There are lots of websites that report the current soil temperature daily for each county.
Plant about 20 pounds per acre when seeding with a no-till drill or other planting implement and 30+ pounds per acre when broadcasting.
