It’s not an invasive. It’s been growing in poor MO soils forever. Strips along a field edge is awesome bugging habitat for turkey poults. Tall which offers protection from avian predators and shade and it grows in clumps so there is plenty of open understory. Given the choice between it and fescue or other truly invasive species I’ll take it every day of the week.
From my experience where it grows and thrives there is no business to even attempt to put in a food plot.

Luckily it is not wide spread. Mainly just where timber ( mostly oak ) was cleared. The only good thing I found online about it was it is good for quail and turkey nesting. Lacking the rest of their habitat it might as well go .
I for see gly lime and clover seed.
sounds like a keeper to me
