I've always had trouble getting to my shooting house undetected in the evenings as deer are often already out in the field.
This year I thought I would try Egyptian Wheat as a screen. It was planted June 15. Coming along pretty well.

Here is the corn out in the field. Sprayed gly on Tuesday and the weeds are dying nicely.

About an acre. I always have more than enough corn so I down sized a little this year. There is also an acre of soybeans and an acre of clover in this field as well.

I'd say you got the three major food groups covered.

I had a hard time finding any. I learned most seed companies sell out fairly early. So I found some on Ebay and had it shipped. I cannot remember the seller.

Super easy to plant. Just disk, sow, and then drive over it with a four-wheeler or truck to press it in.
Plenty of rain and some urea helps.
3 lbs. of seed covered what you see in the pic plus a little more.
