Hybrid BMR Sorghum Sudangrass; NUTRIMAXX
Nutri Maxx is a Brown Midrib Sorghum Sudangrass Hybrid with exceptional palatability and with the addition of a BMR gene that has shown marked reductions of Lignin content in the plant. Lignin is the component of the plant cell walls that is generally regarded as the primary factor limiting the extent of forage fiber digestion. Nutri Maxx offers a premium summer annual hybrid with the same agronomic characteristics you find in a conventional sorghum sudangrass hybrid such as excellent hay quality, heavy pasturing, superior drought tolerance, and wide adaptability.
GRAZING: Begin grazing at 24”. Divide grazing area and rotate when plants are grazed down to 8”.
HAYING: May be cut anytime after it reaches 24”. Cut for maximum quality between 24”-36”. Never let Nutri Maxx reach full maturity, as this drastically reduces protein and TDN (Total Digestible Nutrients)
