Description:

Summer Select 94 R grain sorghum is a medium full-season hybrid that is the most versatile hybrid available. This hybrid responds to environmental variation by adjusting yield accordingly. Under limited moisture situations this hybrid is consistent in its yield, but when greater moisture amounts are available yield levels increase significantly. 94 R has excellent resistance to head smut. The tillering capacity is good as this hybrid will produce 2-3 tillers that are synchronous with the main panicle at flowering/maturity.

  • Sugarcane aphid tolerance
  • Medium maturity
  • Exertion is very good
  • Bronze grain
  • Very flexible hybrid

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 94 day harvest, 94-117 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
