PONANT is a sorghum hybrid with a high yield potential. Approximately 85 to 95 days after sowing, the early hybrid starts to flowering. The half-open risp has orange to light-brown grains with a low tannin content. Furthermore, the variety has a good health status and is stable. The grain sorghum PONANT is used as fodder as well as for biogas or animal nutrition.
- Early-ripening grain sorghum
- Orange-brownish grains
- Low tannin content
Sorghum is sown in rows with an beet or corn sowing machine with sorghum discs. As an alternative sorghum can also be broadcast-sown.
When selecting your sowing machine, please take in mind that seed sizes might vary greatly amongst varieties.
A preparation of a false seed bed before sowing reduces weed pressure during initial development. A combination of mechanical and chemical weed control, whenever possible, is also recommended.
