A warm season annual that is an excellent choice for a one cut system (like corn silage) on marginal corn ground. Uses 30% less water than corn and less nitrogen too. BMR trait has improved forage sorghums dramatically and they are now considered an excellent feed for dairy cattle. Energy levels are comparable to corn with protein levels around 10 to 12%
Forage sorghums are generelly taller, produce more leaves, and are later maturing than typical grain sorghum hybrids. Forage sorghums can produce very high bio-mass yields, but have limited re-growth potential making them excellent choices for single-cut silage and standing green chop production uses.
