Silo 700D BMR Forage Sorghum

This forage sorghum hybrid is a brown midrib and has a very sweet stem with excellent green leaf retention.


The brown midrib characteristic of Silo 700D BMR Forage Sorghum increases digestibility of the stem fibers by reducing the quantity of indigestible lignin. Lignin content is reduced approximately 40-60% depending upon environmental conditions. This reduction in lignin increases sugar content and softens stems making Silo 700D BMR Forage Sorghum more digestible.

Planting Conditions:

  • Plant 6-8 lbs per acre mid-May through July
