Supra Sweet Silage

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. A high leaf to stem ratio with juicy sweet stalks enhances the desirability of this excellent forage product.

Silage yield potential of up to 48 wet tons/acre. This hybrid allows growers to increase profitability due to higher yields, earlier planting and less water requirements per season, compared to competing sorghum crops.
