#2302 | SORGHUM BICOLOR

AF7102 TECH SHEET

Summary

AF7102 is the earliest BMR-6 Brachytic dwarf forage sorghum on the market. Northern producers are finally able to reach high yield potential with tremendous forage quality of a BMR-6 without the issues of lodging. This hybrid works best in areas north of I-70 where humidity and the shorter growing season tend to be a challenge. AF7102 can be used in southern states for late planting or early harvest situations.
