Grain Sorghum Product Guide


SH 59G4

The medium/early maturity hybrid produces a high density, high bushel weight red grain. It has high tolerance to drought and will produce outstanding yields under drylands or limited irrigated conditions.

The semi-open panicle has excellent exertion of 4-6 inches and is easy threshing. Leaf quality is very good and shows excellent resistance to abiotic stresses. Standability is very good because of a stiff stalk and its strong deep root system.

Grain shells well from the panicle during combine harvest. The hybrid works well for double crop in most areas, or as a late planted dryland or irrigated hybrid.

Anthracnose Rating: 4
