Description

Sesame is an annual, warm season broadleaf crop that grows 3 to 6 foot tall.  Sesame will continue to flower, set seed and shatter throughout the growing season with soil moisture, providing a consistent and long-lasting food source for birds.  It is one of the best dove and quail food plot plants for South, Central, and West Texas.  Sesame is also used as a cover crop in some areas.

For dove hunting areas, sesame should be planted in May and requires 120-150 days to maturity. Sesame is one of the most drought hardy options for dove food plots, and one of the few options that is tolerant of sandy and acidic soils.
