What brand are you guys using?. I used some from the coop lastyear and it never grew. I plowed up this piece of ground worked it well, seeded it with a JD end gateseeder at 20 lbs per acre. The ground is not wet. Put in the first week of April. Not looking to start a brand war. There are many varieties available here FS, Pioneer, Northrup King, And several others. I have had no luck with generic varieties. After researching seed, I bought coop because of their own advertising and they are close, bought feed from them too.
