Something else you might consider for a screen is Egyptian Wheat. We used it one year but had some farmers complain because they thought it was shatter cane (related but not the same). We did not plant it again and it did not come back like shatter cane would have.

But it would be tough to beat the cost of feed corn as a food plot seed from an economic perspective at what is the going price now, $10 or $11 a 50 pound sack?
