Super Sugar is a high yielding conventional forage grass best used for hay, grazing, greenchop, or cover crop. Thin sweet stems make it highly palatable with stem sugar ranging from 10-16%. Planting higher populations will result in finer stems, finer stems dry quicker producing higher quality hay. The improved drought tolerant genetics allow Super Sugar to yield even under dry conditions. Recovery following a drought is excellent, but always test the forage for prussic acid prior to feeding to any animal. Yield trial results are below.
Downy mildew resistant
Water requirement - very low
Early seeding vigor - excellent
First cutting in approximately 40-60 days
For highest nutritional value harvest at 40-50 inches or when crop is in the early boot stage.
