Planting Sorghum Again

We have just finished planting about 600 ha (1500 acres) of sorghum on our second field. This is our son James on the tractor. We have Sorghum only 2km away that is about two weeks off harvest and here we are planting.Full profile of moisture in this country, we dry planted into the top dry 100mm of soil and only days ago received about 30mm which should join up the moisture and germinate the seed. Wait and see. We also flew a pre emergent on after planting and so the rain was excellent to incorporate this and activate it.
