Iím tossing around a few ideas in my head. Tried a quick google search and didnít see a lot. One would assume thatís because it wouldnít work but thought Iíd see what some had to say. I know some farmers thatíd give me some roundup ready corn. Any reason I canít plant that in the spring and broadcast some brassica into it in august?  Or maybe some rye would be better.

I would think the corn canopy would block the sun for anything to grow underneath.  :scratch:

Iíve heard of some doing this with pumpkins. Wasnít sure if you could plant early enough to establish to endure the canopy or if you could plant something late when the corn started to dry. I know both brassica and rye can be planted quite late.

Edit-alternatively one could maybe plant in between the rows. Iím no farmer so the corn would either be done by hand or broadcast then drag. So I wouldnít have nice and neat rows that are super compact.

What about taking about half of what you got, put corn in part of it and other stuff in the other parts?? :scratch:

Thatís another good idea. I was thinking of using it as screening instead of switchgrass.

Definitely worth a try.  Use both.
