Ceres Hybrid Tops University Trial
For the 2014 growing season, our Blade brand hybrids performed well in large-scale evaluations with livestock and dairy producers, out-yielding current sorghum hybrids and comparing favorably to other forage crops, such as corn silage, which is planted for its high nutritional value.
Our products also performed well in numerous multi-hybrid trials. For example, the University of Florida reported that one of the company’s forage sorghum hybrids, EJ 7281, was the highest yielding commercial hybrid in both their spring and summer trials in 2014. In spring trials, EJ 7281 yields were calculated at 43,000 pounds of milk per acre, or 40% higher than the nearest entry. Results from summer plantings released last week by the university showed milk yields per acre approximately 20% higher than other commercially planted hybrids. Our Blade brand hybrids also scored well for standability and plant health.
