AF7201 TECH SHEET

Summary

AF7201 is a short-statured, 90-95 day BMR-6 forage sorghum. Under most conditions, AF7201 will yield with full-season hybrids and has good standability. This hybrid performs well under dryland conditions with excellent heat and stress tolerance. Due to its early maturity, AF7201 provides forage production options in areas where most full-season products are unable to mature.
