Under adequate moisture, warm season grasses provide exponential rapid growth at temperatures above 25°C. We do not recommend blending warm season grasses with other annual forages as they tend to have very low competitiveness during the early part of their life cycle and for this reason - are often eliminated early in a mixed stand.
Warm season annual grasses can produce abundant mid to late season forage and should be considered an important addition to your forage system management.
Sorghum Forage Hybrids as well as Sorghum Sudan crosses can produce significant dry matter production relative to corn under limited moisture.
BMR (Brown Mid Rib) varieties are designed to have improved digestibility. Hybrid Pearl Millet is an advanced choice for producers looking for a warm season option for hay or pasture.
Performance in fields has shown from 75 to 100% greater daily weight gains over conventional Sorghum x Sudangrass hybrids. Its high level of palatability allows the hybrid to fit well into cell-grazing systems. This hybrid has a demonstrated ability to increase both meat and milk production dramatically, therefore producing greater profits per acre of pasture.
Late maturing Sorghum x Sudangrass. Superior drought resistance in a multipurpose forage. High protein and digestibility when compared to other conventional Sorghum x Sudangrass hybrids. High green leaf retention.
This hybrid is partially sterile, therefore not producing a significant amount of grain. This causes a substantial buildup of non-structural carbohydrates in the stem and leaves. This forage retains its large, dark green leaves throughout the growing season.
Tall plant with strong stalk for good standability. Wide leaves produce a dark, dense canopy, for superior weed suppression and moisture conservation. This is a dual-purpose hybrid that grows 6 to 7 feet tall. It produces a large panicle of red grain supported by a strong stalk. The plant is very leafy and seedling vigor is excellent. This hybrid reaches soft dough stage in approximately 110 days.
