First introduced to sorghum by Alta Seeds breeders, the brachytic dwarf trait is a cutting-edge forage sorghum that produces sturdy, versatile, and high-yield plants growers can trust in the field and in the market.
Four dwarfing genes in sorghum control height. These brachytic dwarfism genes reduce the length of the internodes without affecting other plant characteristics such as leaf number, leaf size, maturity or yield/biomass production. Brachytic dwarf forage sorghum has very high leaf-to-stalk ratios, prolific tillering, superior standability and comparable tonnage to normal height sorghums.
Brachytic dwarf forage sorghum delivers superior yield density under one- and two-cut programs, giving growers the flexibility and high-quality results they need to drive consistent sorghum production.
