Best Use: Silage, may make baleage if seeded at high rates
Adaptation: Does well on dryland or irrigated fields but requires one-third less water than corn.
Management: Isolate from other sorghums by one mile to protect sterility and prevent seed formation. Manage potential for prussic acid and nitrate buildup. Harvest in the heading stage at 80-85 days for highest sugar content. Will reach boot stage at 70-75 days.
Planting Date: Late-May – early July (soil 62°F+)
Seeding: Seed 8-10 lbs/acre in 30” rows, ½”-1” deep. (For hay, plant at higher rate).
