Combining both photo-period sensitivity and brown midrib traits into one forage makes this a near perfect hybrid forage sorghum. Palatability is so high that cattle will eat stems down to the soil if not managed well by cell grazing. Because hybrid is photosensitive it is possible to produce 40 or more leaves in a full season.
Very deep roots are good for the soil. It can provide up to 50 tons of organic matter to the soil.
