SF Beamer BMR
Focus on high quality
SF Beamer has finer stems, narrow leaf blades, tillers profusely and re-grows rapidly after harvest compared to forage sorghums. It can be sown when soil temperatures reach 18°C and are rising. The time to first grazing will depend upon soil temperatures. A stubble of about 100mm is recommended after cutting or grazing to promote vigorous re-growth and profuse tillering of the next crop.
We recommend SF Beamer where the focus is on high quality grazing and fast recovery between grazings.
