Through conventional breeding and innovative research, Advanta has developed elite sorghum-sudangrass hybrids excellent for grazing and hay production.

Sorghum-sudangrass hybrids are typically crosses between forage sorghums and sudangrasses. They characteristically reach a height of six to eight feet, have smaller stalks than forage sorghum, strong tillering, and produce more tonnage than sudangrass. They have excellent re-growth potential compared to forage sorghums, but less than sudangrass.

Well-suited for multiple harvest systems, the term “haygrazer” is typically applied to these hybrid crosses. Although, sorghum-sudangrass hybrids are primarily used for grazing and hay production, they can be used for silage. If used for silage, the crop should be allowed to wilt before chopping to ensure proper moisture content.
