The freedom of early harvesting, the confidence of reduced spoilage, Dry Stalk forage sorghum from Alta Seeds gives sorghum growers the flexibility they need to get the most from their sorghum acres despite unexpected weather, temperatures, or drought.
Thanks to reduced moisture in the sorghum stalk, forage sorghum with the Dry Stalk characteristic don’t require additional time to dry in the field, allowing producers to quickly bale or ensile their crop with less opportunity for spoilage. In fact, when compared to non-dry stalk sorghum, Dry Stalk forage sorghum has approximately 8% to 10% less moisture when harvested at the soft dough stage. In addition to allowing for quicker storage as baleage or haylege, Dry Stalk sorghum can also be harvested as dry hay.
Though Dry Stalk sorghum contains less moisture, it still delivers optimal digestibility and nutritional value.
