Grow’nGraze is a highly productive blend of hybrid forage sorghum which grows rapidly and recovers quickly following grazing or cutting.
Under favourable conditions, Grow’nGraze has the potential to reach 1 metre in height, just 7 weeks after sowing.
Hybrid Sorghum x Sudan
Sowing Rate: 3-5 kg/ha
Blend Rate: 1-2 kg/ha
Grow’nGraze will produce maximum feed quality and quantity with intensive strip feeding or rotational grazing. The most rapid recovery after grazing generally occurs if the crop is not grazed below a height of 15cm.
Seed size 30,000-35,000 seeds/kg
The young plants and leaves of sorghum/sudan grass contain prussic acid which decreases as plants mature. When plants reach 0.8-1m in height, the prussic acid content in reasonable growing conditions should not be dangerous.
These commonly recommended precautions for forage sorghums should be followed:
|Good drylands or part irrigation||3-4 grazings per season||14 t/ha DM|
|Hay/Silage||3-4 cuts at 1.5m||14 t/ha DM|
