SorMax 85 BMR Forage Sorghum

$2.05 lb

Forage sorghum is a warm-season annual grass closely related to grain sorghum but bred for its impressive overall biomass and dry matter yield. SorMax 85 BMR Forage Sorghum can reach heights of over 10 feet at full maturity. SorMax 85 BMR forage sorghum does not regrow well following cutting and is commonly used as a single harvest silage crop. It will display better drought and heat tolerance than corn and can outperform corn in terms of dry matter yield in a limited moisture environment. It is used throughout the U.S. and performs best on well-drained soils and will not do well in flooding or standing water conditions. It is a high-yielding forage sorghum that displays the brown midrib gene and maintains excellent standability. The BMR gene lowers lignin levels in the plant, which results in more digestible fiber and higher feed value in BMR varieties compared to non-BMR types.
