PREMIUM SORGHUM & FORAGE

Sorghum Sudan Hybrid – Special Effort

A hybrid that can be used for pasture, hay or silage.

Planting Rate: Alone = 25 - 30 pounds per acre, Depth = 1/2” - 1”

BMR Sorghum Sudan Hybrid - NutriPlus

An improved hybrid that is preferred by livestock for its palatability and digestibility. Animal performance is much improved with this variety. The BMR (brown mid rib) trait is significant because this new trait has less lignin, making the grass more digestible and the animal not only eats more of the grass but also digests it better, resulting in better gains and higher milk production.

Planting Rate: Alone = 25 - 30 pounds per acre, Depth = 1/2” - 1”

Redtop plus BMR Forage Sorghum Hybrid

Use for grazing, hay, silage, haylage. Gets 7 - 9 feet tall. Has excellent drought tolerance and excellent palatability due to its sweetness. Good track record for tonnage, yielding 15 - 26 tons per acre.

Planting Rate: Alone = 12 - 15 pounds per acre, Depth = 1”

Pearl Millet

The tallest of the millets (growing 7 - 10 feet tall). Pearl is course and similar to sorghum-sudan, but is easier to dry down for hay. Can be used for hay, pasture and silage and will produce several crops if cut or pastured before it heads out. It is recommended to leave a 10” stubble for regrowth.

Planting Rate: Alone = 25 - 30 pounds per acre, Depth = 1/2” - 1”

Pro-Max BMR Hybrid Sudangrass

The first true sudangrass with the brown mid rib (BMR) trait. The BMR trait has a lower lignin content, giving producers higher palatability and digestibility thus more efficient animal grains. This is a great high quality summer forage that thickens with each grazing. Start grazing at 20 - 25 inches and leave a 6 - 8 inch stubble for best regrowth. Harvest for hay at 40 - 49 inches.
