Agrimax Sorghum Grass Seed
Sorghum–Sudan grass Hybrid
(Sorghum bicolor x sorghum sudanese)
• Significant Increase in Digestibility
• Significant Increase in Palatability
• Significant Increase in Efficiency

Agrimax Hybrid Sorghum-Sudan grass has exceptional palatability
and the addition of a Brown Midrib gene has shown marked reduction of lignin
content in the plant. Lignin is the component of the cell walls that is generally
regarded as the primary factor limiting the extent of forage fiber digestion. This
totally new hybrid has shown an 18.9% average increase in feed value compared
to conventional and offers an additional $42.84 dollars per acre based on feed at
$60.00 per ton. It offers a premium summer annual hybrid with the same
agronomic characteristics you will find in a conventional sorghum- sudan grass
hybrid such as excellent hay quality, heavy pasturing, superior drought tolerance,
and a wide adaptability – plus the increased utilization and efficiency you get
from the Brown Midrib gene.

Seeding:
• Soil temperature should be at least 60° F at 1-2” deep
• Can be no-tilled into the stubble of winter and spring crops
• Do not plant on soils with pH greater than 7.5 to 8.0. Chlorosis will be a problem.

Harvest:
Agrimax Hybrid Sorghum Grass Seed can be harvested at any time. It can be harvested in the boot
stage or the soft dough stage.

Avoiding Nitrate and Prussic Acid Poisoning from Sorghum:
• Avoid large nitrogen applications prior to expected drought periods
• 2,4-D can increase Prussic Acid concentration for weeks after application
• Do not harvest drought damaged plants within 4 days following a good rain
• Do not harvest within 7 days of a killing frost
• Cut at a higher stubble height, nitrates tend to accumulate in the lower stalk
• Wait 1 month before feeding silage to give Prussic Acid enough time to escape
