Description:

Summer Select 92 B grain sorghum is a medium early hybrid that produces a high density, high bushel weight bronze grain. This hybrid has a high tolerance to drought and will produce outstanding yields under dryland or limited irrigation. This semi-open panicle has excellent exertion of 4-6 in. and is easy threshing. The leaf quality is very good and shows excellent resistance to drought. Standability is very good due to a stiff stalk and deep root system. This hybrid works well for a double crop option in most areas, or as a late planted dryland or irrigated hybrid.

  • Anthracnose tolerance
  • Medium early maturity
  • High drought tolerance
  • Excellent yield potential

Seeding Information:

    • Soil temperature of 60 F and climbing
    • Average seeds/pound: 15,000
    • Planting depth should be 1-2 in., depending on soil moisture
    • Follow recommended seeding rates for your area:

Higher moisture areas: 4-6 lbs./acre
High plains (lower moisture): 2-3 lbs./acre

  • Do not plant in soil with pH greater than 7.5 as iron chlorosis may become an issue

Fertility:

  • Please test your soil!
  • Under favorable conditions, 1-1¼ lbs. of nitrogen per day of planned growth should be available for ultimate growth, with little risk for nitrate poisoning. For example, for a planned 90 day harvest, 90-112 lbs. of nitrogen should be available.
  • Potassium levels should be maintained similar to that of corn
  • If soil pH is greater than 7.2, an application of Iron may be
    necessary to prevent iron chlorosis
