Multicut

High energy feed

Multicut can be used for grazing, hay, silage or green chop and is excellent for dry matter production with a high protein and energy content. 

This new hybrid was developed in the U.S.A. and tested in South Africa. 

Multicut has been bred to surpass many of the existing hybrids in dry matter production, protein and energy content, disease and drought tolerance. It also has rapid re-growth under heavy grazing and unfavourable growing conditions. 

Sweetfeed Super

Sweet Sorghum x Sweet Sorghum

Sweetfeed is a vigorous three way cross hybrid forage sorghum. It is a full season maturity hybrid with will reach 3 meters upon maturity. The high leaf to stem ratio of this hybrid allows for high yields with increased palatability. This hybrid has also proven to have excellent root and stalk strength which gives it tremendous standability even under drought stress. 

Sweetfeed is a sorghum cross suitable for silage and grazing in winter. 

Big Kahuna

Photoperiod sensitive (PPS) Sorghum/Sudan grass 

This hybrid is photoperiod sensitive and needs 12 hrs:20mins of day length to remain vegetative. The continuous production of leaves results in enhanced quality of forage. Depending on location and time of sowing a 150-160day growth can result in very high yields. The hybrid can be harvested 3 –4 times per season for pasture or hay (optimum time for hay harvest is around 70days after sowing); or only once for silage.

Big Kahuna BMR

Break through hybrid

This hybrid is a true “break through”. Combining both photo period sensitivity and brown midrib traits into one forage, makes this a near perfect hybrid forage sorghum.

The palatability of BIG KAHUNA is so high that cattle will eat the stems down to the soil if not managed well by cell grazing. It is possible to produce 40 or more leaves in a full season.
