Summer Select 95 BMR BD forage sorghum is the ideal choice for the dairy or feedlot producer looking for a product that can deliver superior silage qualities using a one cut system.
In a short period of time, this BMR 6 hybrid will consistently produce top yields of high quality forage with tremendous grain production; all while, when planted at lower populations, the dwarfing gene assists with standability, making this hybrid a favorite. The high sugar levels in the stems combined with the lower lignin concentrations of the BMR 6 gene lead to enhanced digestibility and animal intake.
