These hybrids, resulting from a cross of sorghum with sudangrass are best suited for in season grazing or multi-cut haying or haylage (immature plant silage). Excellent regrowth after clipping. Excellent seedling vigor. Somewhat better iron chlorosis tolerance and slightly better cold seedbed tolerance than forage sorghum. Minimum germination soil temperature of 60 degrees and rising. Maximum planting depth 2 ½ inches. Late season leaf retention is poor compared to forage sorghums, making sorghum sudangrass less suited for post season grazing or mature plant silage.

Sharp Brothers 2015 lineup of sorghum sudangrass hybrids consists of four BMR hybrids and one standard (non BMR) hybrid. Our breeding and testing effort has concentrated on BMR hybrids over the past decade. As a result, our BMR hybrids are equal to and frequently better than the non BMR hybrids in regards to seedling vigor, yield potential, and regrowth. Stalk quality (energy levels and palatability) is noticeably better than that of non-BMR sorghum sudangrass hybrids in early stages of maturity. In later stages of maturity, BMR sorghum sudangrass stalk quality is dramatically better than that of the non-BMRs. Harvested early or harvested late, the Grazex BMR sorghum sudangrass hybrids produce palatable nutritious forage resulting in excellent animal performance and very little waste when hayed or grazed.
