We have done this for quite sometime. We plant ours with a finger meter in our jd planter. Plant around 20,000 population. A thinner stand will give you larger heads. We notill most of ours but start clean and overlay with generic dual after planting. If you clean till you can cultivate them. Keep em clean the first 3 or 4 weeks and after that they can outgrow most anything else. We use a hybrid black oil seed from our corn seed dealer. Remember they only last at best 1 week in hot weather, so you need to stagger plantings or you will only have a short season.
