A sweet sorghum-sudangrass hybrid that produces plants with fine stems and large leaves. Forage produced by Grazer 17 is very palatable to cattle and may be used for grazing, hay, or green chop. Grazer 17 has adapted widely to various growing conditions and can be planted in all areas where sudangrass is grown.
With the addition of a Production +Plus BMR gene, this brown midrib sorghum-sudangrass hybrid shows marked reduction of lignin content, the component generally regarded as the primary factor limiting the extent of forage fiber digestion. This new hybrid has shown an 18.9% average increase in feed value compared to conventional hybrids while still offering traditional agronomic characteristics such as excellent hay quality, heavy pasturing, superior drought tolerance, and wide adaptability.
A warm season annual that can be used for multi-cut green chop or hay, summer pasture, or cover crop. More fine-stemmed than Sorghum-Sudan hybrid, making it a great hay choice. Grows quickly and often up to 7ft, so needs to be mowed regularly. Plant late spring to early summer in warm soil and graze when mature (never after a frost). Other versatile uses include loosening soil with deep roots, cycling nutrients (especially excess nitrogen), and reducing nematode/symphylan populations with decomposition.
Surpass is a value added BMR hybrid sorghum-sudangrass that delivers highly digestible forage. It is a short structured plant with twice the number of leaves as conventional varieties. With RFQ values comparable to alfalfa and 15-25% less lignin content than comparative BMR hybrids, this variety is highly digestible while contributing to a more efficient feed to gain ratio. In addition to superior feed quality, Surpass exhibits excellent drought tolerance and quick recovery after cuttings. This hybrid is sure to please both farmers and livestock alike.
A drought tolerant sorghum sudangrass with BMR 6 gene technology to improve digestibility through lower lignin levels. This high-sugar, palatable crop provides an efficient feed source for a more enhanced rate of gain. Adaptable to a wide range of environments, this grass exhibits exceptional seedling vigor and superior regrowth abilities, resulting in multiple harvests. Its excellent nitrogen use efficiency and high leaf to stem ratio makes this variety an all-around exceptional crop choice.
