A88 Grain Sorghum Hybrid

Get set to be impressed!

From establishment, A88 grain sorghum looks the goods and backs it up with top yields.

This hybrid exhibits early vigour, setting the grain sorghum up for strong growth through to harvest.

A medium maturity grain sorghum, A88 has proven itself as a market leader for yield across all environments.

The sorghum's later flowering window and quicker dry down period are just two of big features growers enjoy.

Extensively tested, A88's large, open primary head and big grain size result in fewer screenings and higher test weights.

If you're looking for good growth without forsaking yield, try Pioneer's A88 grain sorghum.

Proven through exhaustive scientific trials

A88 is a proven hybrid that's evolved from an initial three years of research-site testing, then advanced to our Seed Technology Research In Key Environments (STRIKE) trial program. There are about 40 STRIKE trial locations across the country each year.

STRIKE trials are replicated and randomised with diagonal check hybrids entered throughout the trial, ensuring the data is accurate and not affected by paddock variation, or other variables.
