DM Super Sugar produces increased yields and protein. It grows 25-30 extra days; this increases yield substantially and maintains protein longer. This hybrid allows more time to harvest a highly nutritious forage. Unbeatable conventional summer annual forage grass for hay, grazing, haylage, or cover-crop/carbon-builder. Since this hybrid is later maturing the harvest timing can be delayed to produce a higher yield. Sweet stems and increased leaf to stem ratio ensures a quality of feed cattle prefer over others. Harvest is normally 60-80 days after planting. When planted after wheat this hybrid can be harvested once at 60-80 days instead of twice. This hybrid has quick regrowth suitable for multiple cuttings.Yields can be up 8-10 Ton/Acre dry matter. We have made 18 tons of silage dryland here in Texas. In an irrigated or rainfed field it can make 30 Ton/Acre. The TDN can be around 58-62% and protein 14-16%. For cover crop or prevent plant acres this hybrid produces the top yield for organic matter.
