The grain hybrid sorghum

Grain Hybrid Sorghum is widespread mainly in central-northern Italy. The culture finds diffusion in non-irrigated environments as an alternative to corn. The grains of sorghum, especially the low-tannin content, find a reasonable interest on the part of the feed mills with prices that are in line with those of the corn grain but with lower production costs. The hybrid sorghum produces a grain particularly suitable for animal nutrition as it has the following characteristics: a - farinosa fracture T greater degradability of starch b - health T absence of mycotoxins From a nutritional point of view, the grain of sorghum is similar to that of corn and is used in the same quantities and methods in animal rations. The sowing takes place with a quantity of seed per hectare variable in relation to the seeders that are used: Precision sowing machines: 11-18 kg / Ha Mechanical seed drills: 18-25 kg / Ha
