Mega Sweet Summer Forage

Irresistable

 

Mega Sweet forage sorghum is attractive to stock at any stage of growth, increasing 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 sorghum hybrid is especially well-suited to beef enterprises and can deliver exceptional weight gains.

This is a sweet sorghum x grain sorghum hybrid.
