Seed Count :
Hybrid Sorghum Sudangrass; EXCEL II
Excel is a small seeded sweet sorghum-sudangrass hybrid that has a proven track record in meeting demands of the High Plains cattle producer. Good plant emergence and drought tolerant, coupled with hybrid vigor and excellent re-growth and tillering characteristics, well suited for multiple cuttings of high-quality hay and heavy pasturing.
GRAZING: Begin grazing at 24”. Divide grazing area and rotate when plants are grazed down to 8”.
HAYING: It may be cut anytime after it reaches 24 inches in height. Cut for maximum quality between 24”-36”. Never let Excel reach full maturity, as this drastically reduces protein and TDN (Total Digestible Nutrients)
