The flexible Summer Forage.

 

Pioneer® brand Mega Sweet is attractive to stock at any stage of growth and increases its feed value and sweetness as it matures. 

Mega Sweet can be planted early in the season, mid-season or late-season for late summer and carry-over feed.

Mega Sweet can be used for grazing or quality silage production but should be your first choice for grazing cattle.

This hybrid is especially well-suited to beef enterprises and can deliver exceptional weight gains.
