AF7401 BMR BRACHYTIC DWARF FORAGE SORGHUM

#2312 | SORGHUM BICOLOR

AF7401 TECH SHEET

Summary

AF7401 represents the newest generation of hybrid forage sorghums. This product features genetic combination of BMR-6 and Brachytic dwarf that enhances both productivity and efficiency. AF7401 has reduced internode length creating a compact, leafy and prolific plant. However, it will yield with taller sorghums due to the standability and tillering attributes of the Brachytic dwarf characteristic. Producers will have the best of both worlds, excellent forage qualities and a dependable high-yielding feedstock.
