Pioneer® brand products G22 Grain Sorghum Seed
an even hybrid with high performance.
Pioneer® brand products G22 is a high performance sorghum hybrid suitable for all growing districts and regions, including dryland and irrigated sorghum fields. It produces a very attractive bright orange grain that is a very good grain size and is a profitable hybrid to grow as the grain is highly sought-after by the bird seed market because of its appearance. This hybrid grain sorghum plant is also known for its excellent height uniformity, which aids ease of harvesting, and produces an even crop with excellent standability. G22 remains an excellent option for regions with cool starts due to its strong cold tolerance.
Sorghum farmers will favour G22's high pollen production, even in adverse weather events (eg. heat, moisture stress or cool conditions at flowering), which helps maximise grain set and reduces the risk of ergot infection. G22 is a moderate tillering hybrid, with the tillers flowering at a similar time as the main head. The hybrid has good glyphosate sprayout dry-down when herbicide is applied at the correct rate and timing
