Brutis is a long maturity (95 days to bloom) brachytic dwarf forage sorghum. This is one of our top choices for full season silage. This variety, though short in stature, has a long maturity that adds to total yield, about 50% more leaves that are much longer and wider than tall forage sorghums, and short but very thick and soft pithy stems. Quality is exceptional due to BMR genetics, good grain yield, a very high leaf to stem ratio, and lack of a hard rind on the stems. The shorter mature height makes for exceptional standability. If planted after July 1, Brutis will not produce grain, making it an ideal stockpiled winter grazing resource for brood cows.
