Later Grazer

Later Grazer

This hybrid boasts significant yield advantage over photoperiod sensitive varieties. Unlike the photoperiod sensitive varieties, Later Grazer can be sown at any day length which is extremely valuable in South and Central Texas and Northern Mexico, because it will allow this variety to be planted earlier in the spring to take advantage of soil moisture that is often available at this time of year. Photoperiod varieties must be planted later in the spring at a time when soil moisture tends to decline.

Later Grazer is 25 to 30 days later in maturity than typical hybrids, thus allowing up to 25% more yields without sacrificing quality. Digestibility of Later Grazer can be up to 20+% greater than other commercially available hybrids.

This conventional sorghum-sudangrass with delayed maturity has exceptional drought resistance, high green leaf retention, excellent tillering and re-growth capacity, and excellent stand ability.
