Product Description

AF7201 is a shorter statured and earlier version of the fuller season BMR 6 forage sorghums. Under most conditions, AF7201 will yield with full-season hybrids and has improved standabilty. This hybrid performs well under dryland conditions with very good 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. The increase in standabilty is an advantage under all conditions. The BMR 6 characteristic has significantly lower lignin levels for improved palatability and digestibility — increasing milk and beef production.

  • High yield and quality
  • Superior tillering
  • Harvest 90-95 days after emergence

Forage Sorghum

Alta brand non GMO forage sorghums offer dairy and livestock producers an alternative to corn silage and multi-cut sorghum sudans. Alta brand forage sorghums are selected for high nutritional and agronomic benefits for today’s livestock producer. The BMR 6 genetics vault sorghum into the realm of super star forages for maximum fiber digestibility and increased palatability, making excellent dairy feed. We offer forage sorghum with maturity ranges from 83 day up to 110 days. Alta offers brachytic dwarf and male sterile products, the brachytic dwarf characteristics make sorghum an agronomically sound crop. (It can stay standing up until harvest.)  Energy levels are comparable to corn and protein level is around 10 to 12%. It is more efficient than corn, much less expensive to plant than corn, as well as higher yielding than corn in the southern Midwest, additional forage sorghum vs corn comparisons.

  • 30% less nutrient (nitrogen) requirements than corn silage
  • 30%-50% less water requirements than corn silage
  • Productive on marginal soils
  • Drought and heat tolerant, won’t shut down until 105 degrees
