BMR Gene 6 Forage Sorghums

The BMR 6 genetics certainly vault sorghum into the realm of super star forages for maximum fiber digestibility and increased palatability.

Description

Energy from sugar? We're talking sugar cane for cows, known as silage sorghum. Energy from digestible fiber? We're definitely talking about gene 6 BMR Forage Sorghum! BMR Gene 6 is a naturally bred-in trait and is non-GMO.

Alta brand forage sorghums offer livestock producers an alternative to corn silage and multi-cut sorghum sudans. Alta brand forage sorghums are selected for high nutritional and agronomic benefits for today's livestock producer. The BMR 6 genetics certainly vault sorghum into the realm of super star forages for maximum fiber digestibility and increased palatability. The brachytic dwarf characteristics make sorghum an agronomically sound crop. (It can stay standing up until harvest.) It is more efficient than corn and much less expensive to plant than corn, as well as higher yielding than corn in the southern Midwest, which makes this sorghum a farmer's true friend.

Alta offers brachytic dwarf and male sterile products, and offers maturity range from 83 day up to 110 days. The Alta lineup that Byron Seeds carries is the best forage sorghum lineup that I have found.
