H-BMR PHOTO SWEET 69-SSNEW!Back to top

H-BMR PHOTO SWEET 69-SS is a photoperiod sensitive sorghum x sudangrass hybrid. Photoperiod sensitive means it will grow all season before it heads out. Photo Sweet 69-SS has improved drought tolerance and increased tonnage. We recommend harvesting for hay at 45" to 50" in height, usually around 70 days after planting, however since it is a photoperiod sensitive, Photo Sweet 69-SS can be left to grow up to 10 feet in height and then chopped and ensiled. Since Photo Sweet 69-SS is also a brown mid rib, it has reduced Lignin, which increases the digestibility and utilization.

H-BMR73-HFBack to top

H-BMR73-HF is a medium early maturity, male sterile, brown mid rib hybrid forage used for hay or early silage production. The BMR trait keeps the Lignin levels low, creating better feed values due to increased digestibility. H-BMR73-HF will produce the highest quality with excellent tonnage for your livestock operation.

HG82-HFBack to top

HG82-HF is a traditional, medium maturity hybrid forage sorghum typically used for silage production. HG82-HF has tremendous drought tolerance and yield potential with excellent nutritional value. This hybrid has a shorter plant structure for good standability and will range from 6' to 7' in height. HG82-HF will produce a red grain head with high grain yields increasing overall silage quality.

H-BMR85-HFBack to top

H-BMR85-HF is the newest generation of BMR quality. H-BMR85-HF is a medium maturing hybrid forage sorghum used for silage production featuring the Brachytic dwarf characteristic. This trait reduces internode length, producing a very compact leafy forge sorghum. It will yield with taller sorghums but has the standability of shorter non BMR hybrids and will produce significantly lower stem Lignin concentrations creating much higher feed values. H-BMR85-HF will produce high yields, excellent quality silage with superior standability.

HG-96-HFBack to top

HG-96-HF is a late maturing, tall hybrid forage sorghum used for silage production with high tonnage potential. Due to the high sugar content, stalks are very sweet and juicy. Plant height reaches 10-12'. HG-96-HF is for the producer seeking a full season, tall hybrid for maximum tonnage and good overall silage quality.
