Ideal as a stand over feed for grazing
SF Splendour is an ultra-late Photo Period Sensitive (PPS) hybrid sorghum x sudangrass. It can be grazed or held over as standing feed or hay and will not run to head like the early maturing varieties on the market.
The plant will not enter the reproductive stage until there is less than 12 hours and 20 minutes sunlight which takes it out well into autumn.
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®.
