Grain Sorghum Hybrid Recommendations

There is considerably more 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/).  

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

  • DEKALB DKS53-67

  • Pioneer 84G62

  • Pioneer 84P80

  • DEKALB DKS49-45

  • Dyna Gro 772B

  • Terral TV96H81
