Anyone drill sorghum Sudan grass into a spent alfalfa field this time of year

Direct seed or spray roundup first, not going to work it up, just wondering if the grass is going to be to much competition?

When I had a Deere 750 drill did it a couple times for a neighbor that raised alfalfa for contract to dairies. He baled it as balage as it was hard to dry down and keep a decent protein content in it. As far as spraying old stand don’t think he used roundup just a cheap grass killer like Poast.

********** doesn’t compete well with other grasses. I’d do whatever you can to remove competition. I know alfalfa fields can get pretty compacted from all the traffic, so I think it’ll have a hard time growing much anyway. I could be wrong though, that’s just what I’ve noticed
