Sept 2016 sorghum silage harvest


Our BMR brachytic forage sorghum has done well in spite of the extremely dry weather.  It was planted the 25 of May but stood still for a while until it got watered (June 3 planting was killed by chilling injury from very cold temperatures). Soft dough stage was just reached today on most of the plants.  Yields are running 22 to 25 tons of 35% dry matter silage in spite of the very dry summer (we has some critical rains others did not).  For those growing it for the first time the following are the questions you have asked or should be asking; the following are some suggestions based on our research the with the crop the past five years.
