Hunnigreen is a superior quality forage sorghum that will not flower until day length is less than 12 hours and 20 minutes. This means it will remain in the vegetative stage and still produce large amounts of quality leaf, when other quicker flowering sweet sorghums have started to run to head. Hunnigreen is higher quality, sweet grazing for longer production.

 

Product fit

Anyone seeking a highly palatable sweet forage that will not run to head quickly. Hunnigreen will stay leafier longer than some competitor varieties and lessen your risk of ergot.
