CW 7700 Forage Sorghum Seed

PERFORMANCEForage Technology Sheet PDF Download Button

  • Forage sorghum hybrid that efficiently produces high forage yields and is easy to manage
  • Fits silage production needs of dairies and feedlots across the Southern Great Plains and Southwestern U.S.
  • Efficient user of water and fertility

 

MANAGEMENT

  • Uses a third less water and half the applied nitrogen fertilizer as corn for silage
  • Reaches the soft-dough stage in approximately 120 days
  • Strong stalks for very good standability
  • Produces yields and silage quality comparable to corn for silage and exceeds corn on marginal soils
  • Yields 5,000 to 7,000 pounds per acre of red grain, resulting in a very high grain-to-stover ratio. This significantly increases digestible dry matter per acre when fed as silage. The high protein content and total digestible nutrients make CW 7700 perfect for the feedlot or dairy
  • Apply 1-1.25 pounds of actual nitrogen for each day to the expected harvest date

 

APPEARANCE AT HARVEST MATURITY

  • Crop height will be 6 to 8 feet tall with a strong stalk
  • Dense, numerous, wide, dark-green leaves

 

SEEDING RATE RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Approximately 15,000 seeds per pound
  • Irrigated: 10 pounds per acre in rows or drilled at 20 pounds per acre
  • Dryland: 4 to 5 pounds per acre in rows or drilled at 15 to 20 pounds per acre
