Supra Hay

This is a high yielding, drought and salinity tolerant, sorghum sudangrass hybrid that has extremely high digestibility (NDFD Test 60-70%), which is similar to BMR varieties. A high leaf to stem ratio with thin sweet stalks enhances the desirability of this grass and makes it an excellent baled hay crop.

Yield potential of over 10 dry matter tons/acre, with great regrowth. This hybrid allows growers to increase profitability due to higher yields, earlier planting and less water requirements per season, compared to competing sorghum sudangrass crops.
