Field of Sorghum

Forage Sorghum

A drought-tolerant substitute for corn silage, forage sorghum requires less nitrogen and overall inputs compared to corn and will have reduced starch content compared to corn silage. Forage sorghum can be taken in soft dough stage as a direct cut or boot stage as a cut and wilt system. Beware of prussic acid conditions and be prepared to manage for the sugarcane aphid late-season.
