AF7301 TECH SHEET

Summary

AF7301 is a male sterile hybrid with the nutritional benefits of the BMR-6 characteristic. It will not produce grain unless a foreign pollen source is available. Male sterile sorghums, such as AF7301, have high levels of sugar and protein due to a lack of grain development. This hybrid offers excellent digestibility and high yield potential. AF7301 provides growers with a high energy forage crop.
