KingFisher SugarPro 55

This hybrid is very quick growing and high yielding. The higher leaf to stem ratio ensures a quality of grazing or feed. Digestibility of this hybrid is increased due to the reduction in lignin. This reduction of lignin improves the quality of fiber, which improves daily gains or milk production significantly. KF Sugar-Pro 55 SS has a higher NDFD than conventional hybrids. With the dry stalk gene, harvest delays related to drying can be reduced. This hybrid is best utilized for rotational grazing or 2-3 cuttings, allowing you to produce the maximum amount of quality forage per acre. This hybrid is more economical to plant, grows off better and produces more tonnage. The root system is also quite extensive.

Also available in Certified Organic.
