Honey Grazin’ BMR

Honey-Grazin'-BMR-piclogoHoney Grazin’ BMR will produce higher yields with full season growth. It is a photo-sensitive BMR sorghum sudangrass for grazing, baling, or greenchop. You can expect prompt regrowth after harvest, with adequate moisture and fertility you can expect multiple cuttings. This hybrid was chosen for its high sugar content and its increased yield potential. The lignin (indigestible matter) has been reduced by 35% which results in increased digestibility and palatability. Following a drought Sweet-Forever BMR will grow rapidly not heading until day length is less than 12 hrs 20 minutes. Yield trial results below.

Additional Characteristics:

  • Excellent recovery after cutting or grazing
  • Anthracnose resistant
  • Downy mildew resistant
  • Water requirement – very low
  • New hybrid with high stem sugar content
  • Early seeding vigor – excellent
  • First cutting at approximately 60 days
  • This hybrid will continue to grow throughout the season not heading out until day length is less than 12 hours 20 minutes
  • Ideal harvest height for best nutritional value is 50-55 inches

Planting Rates:

  • Seeds per pound:  15,000-17,000

“I planted Sweet-For-Ever BMR in late May. The 1st cutting in early August averaged about 9 tons per acre, and the 2nd cutting in early October also averaged 9 tons per acre at 32% dry matter. Recent test show 11% protein and RFV 89% on dry matter basis.  I use it in my milk cow ration in place of wheatledge. The cows eat it well.  It is a very easy and inexpensive crop to grow.  I plan to grow it again in 2013.”    — Andy  (Hereford, TX)
