    SSA 171 BMR6 DS (Forage Sorghum)

    SSA 171 BMR6 DS is a brown midrib, male sterile hybrid forage sorghum that reaches harvest maturity approximately 75 days from planting. Because the lignin content of the stalk has been dramatically reduced, digestibility improves by 35%over conventional forage sorghums. SSA 171 BMR6 DS forage sorghum, with this improvement in digestibility and palatability, can equal the milk production of rations of corn. Plant at the recommended rates for your area and harvest timely for optimum yield and quality. The water requirement for SSA 171 BMR6 DS is 1/3 less than would be required to produce an equivalent amount of corn. Because SSA 171 BMR6 DS is a male sterile hybrid, volunteer growth is not an issue provided there is adequate isolation from pollen fertile sorghums.

    SSA 191 BMR6 BD (Brachytics Dwarf Forage Sorghum)

    SSA 191 BMR6 BD is a brachytic dwarf, brown midrib, grain producing hybrid forage sorghum. Because the lignin content of the stalk has been dramatically reduced, IVDMD is 40% greater than conventional forage sorghums. SSA 191 BMR6 BD with this improvement in digestibility and palatability, can equal the milk production of corn with a water requirement 1/3 less than would be required to produce an equivalent amount of corn. Because SSA 191 BMR6 BD is a grain producing hybrid, energy will increase as carbohydrates form in the grain head. Plant at the recommended rates for your area and harvest timely for optimum yield and quality.

    SSA 251 BMR6 DS (Dry Stalk Hybrid Sorghum-Sudan)

    This hybrid produces a high tillering high quality forage that has excellent early vigor. The high leaf to stem ratio means that you can count on high protein. The digestibility of this hybrid has been increased by 20% due to the BMR 6 trait. The dry stalk gene allows a more timely harvest and helps to get the crop bailed and out of the field before it gets rained on while drying. Typically this hybrid is used in a rotational grazing or 1-3 cutting system allowing you to produce the maximum amount of forage.

    SSA 252 BMR6 (Hybrid Sorghum-Sudangrass)

    SSA 252 BMR6 produces some of the highest dry matter yields of any BMR and non-BMR hybrid sorghum-sudangrass commercially available with excellent nutritional quality and early vigor. SSA 252 BMR6 is highly digestible with increased efficiency and improved animal utilization due to reduced lignin, the limiting factor in forage digestibility. This hybrid has excellent drought tolerance and is quick growing, allowing the maximum tonnage in the shortest amount of time. Fine sweet stems makes SSA 252 BMR6 an excellent choice for grazing, hay, greenchop and silage.

    SSA GREENGRAZER V (Hybrid Sorghum-Sudangrass)

    SSA GREENGRAZER is a small-seeded three way cross with thin stems that are highly palatable. Regrowth after cutting is very fast. SSA GREENGRAZER is a dark green color and also possesses the Green Top trait, which allows for further extension of the plant. Planting SSA GREENGRAZER at higher populations per acre will result in a finer stemmed forage. Finer stems will allow the forage to dry faster for higher quality hay than is possible with thick stemmed types.

    SSA Leafy Pearl Millet

    Hybrid with yield potential of 3 – 6 dry matter tons. Widely adapted to many regions for continuous grazing and/or forage production. No prussic acid concerns. SSA Leafy Pearl Millet is a hybrid type pearl millet producing quick high yields. It only requires 60 days to the boot stage. It has good tolerance to many pathogens and high humidity. With its short plant stature, means that the forage produced is virtually all leaves. This high leaf mass assures SSA Leafy Pearl Millet very high protein concentrations and high TDN values.
