What are the pros? Deer and insect resistant
What are the cons? None
The deer and raccoons not only destroy the corn but anything around it in the kitchen gardens I raise at a historic park. I started growing broom corn because it looks so much like corn but the animals don't bother it. I now grow it for its' own beauty and usefulness. It's tall and striking and the heads are beautiful. It's drawn many park guests into discussions about what it is and its history. This year a group of people will be making brooms using my broom corn which I learned to harvest by watching videos on the Internet. There was only one issue. We had several days of heavy rain with horizontal winds which managed to blow the plants over.Three days afterwards I pulled them back up, pushed them into the muck and they did just fine.
This is a beautiful, easy plant to grow and tough as nails. Being in the garden and watching it grow taller and taller is amazing! I would recommend it not only as a field crop but a few in the flower garden. Children would love to grow this.

What are the pros? The height is impressive
What are the cons? Not knowing when to process it
I grew a packet of 4 varieties and love each one but I don’t know when to process or how! I’ve collected the seeds and will try again! Be prepared to be amazed

What are the pros? Pest resistant, beautiful
What are the cons? -
I planted a bed of these and a bed of white sorghum for brooms. These have held up wonderfully, especially the red variety, against garden pests, and they're gorgeous on top of it!

I originally grew this to make a couple of brooms with. I only planted half the packet though and it turns out you need 40 some heads for one broom. The plants are lovely and huge. They would be wonderful landscaping plants. Anyways, I cut them and am selling them at market and they are a great sell. Plus I can take the ones I don't sell home and bring them back the next week. It catches peoples eye and brings them to the table. I will still make a broom eventually but will probably buy two packets next year, one for a broom and one for selling.
