Profile

Sorghum bicolor

SAURI is an ultra-early sorghum hybrid that is suitable for feed and biogas production due to its starch content. Due to its earliness, the variety is able to make optimal use of the growing season. It reaches a growth height of approx. 200 cm. In contrast to other sorghum varieties, its good cold tolerance and rapid youth development also make it interesting for cultivation at higher altitudes.

Seedbed

The seedbed should be as fine-crumbled as possible (similar to beet) and a good connection to the capillary water must be ensured.
