Fast first feed and multiple harvests
SF Flourish is an excellent value forage sorghum option ideally suited to fast first feed and multiple harvests. It should be grazed from 60–100cm in height to maximise forage quality, but can be conserved as hay, but with lower feed value.
Higher sowing rates will maximise yield and improve quality through production of finer stems. Suited to hay or grazing by sheep, beef or dairy cattle. It will need to be fed with adequate nutrition based on a soil test. We recommend sowing with an N/P based starter fertiliser and regular topdressing after grazings with Nitrogen and some Potassium.
Being a sorghum by sudan, grass weeds can be controlled with Atrazine without the need for a seed safener. For difficult grass and broadleaf weed problems, you can use a seed safener such as Concep II® to enable the use of Dual Gold® or Primextra Gold®.
