Supra Sweet Sorghum

This is a high yielding, cold and drought tolerant, sweet sorghum hybrid that has some of the highest recorded sugar levels. These high Brix levels make it very palatable and increase its energy value. It can be baled, or chopped for silage in a bag or a pit. A high leaf to stem ratio with juicy sweet stalks enhances the desirability of this excellent forage product.

Silage yield potential over 45 wet tons/acre and 11 – 15 potential dry matter tons/acre. With this hybrid growers can increase profitability due to higher yields per season.
