Medium-Quick

G33

G33 has long been one of the leading commercial grain sorghum hybrids in Australia.

A shorter hybrid with very good stalk strength means G33 has excellent standability, especially when under stress which will makes it a very attractive option for growers.

G33 has low staygreen levels which enables quick harvest dry-down. The hybrid also offers excellent cold tolerance which makes it a great option for cold starts.

This hybrid has good-sized red grain on a semi-open head type.

  In this video, grower Andrew Arthur talks about the strengths of G33 and how it fits into his farming program.

What farmers say about G33

brett-campbell-g33.jfif

"Yield and standability in sorghum is important, plus we also want a variety with a good midge rating. We've also found G33 has a good grain size and the screenings have been very low in the past."

"Shortly after planting we had about 10 days of 40-plus degree weather, which was fairly hard on everything. Then on Boxing Day we had a horrendous storm, which produced a lot of in-field wash. However, G33 stood up well, handling the conditions better than the competitor sorghum next to it.”
