Grain Sorghum Hybrid Suggestions

There is some increased interest in Grain Sorghum or milo production in Mississippi this year.  Since Mississippi State University has not conducted Grain Sorghum Hybrid Trials the last several years, I suggest reviewing grain sorghum performance data from the University of Arkansas (http://www.arkansasvarietytesting.com/) and the LSU AgCenter Hybrid Trials (http://www.lsuagcenter.com/en/crops_livestock/crops/Sorghum/Variety+Trials++Recommendations/Performance-of-Grain-Sorghum-Hybrids-in-Louisiana-2010.htm).  

Those grain sorghum hybrids yielding consistently well above the mean in dryland trials generally corresponding with Mississippi grain sorghum production areas include:

  • Pioneer 84G62

  • DEKALB DKS54-03

  • Dyna Gro 772B

  • DEKALB DKS54-00
