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
Pounds per acre
10 (in rows) 20 (drilled)
4 to 5 (in rows) 15 to 20 (drilled)
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 5,000-7,000 pounds per acre of red grain, resulting in 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 feed lot or dairy.
Apply 1-1.25 pounds of actual nitrogen for each day to the expected harvest date.
Crop height will be 6-8 feet tall with a strong stalk
