Effect of Sorghum Maturity at Harvest and Variety on Certain Chemical Constituents in Sorghum Silages1
- F. G. Owen and
- O. J. Webster2
Advancing maturity of sorghums from the bloom to the hard-seed stage resulted in significant decreases in moisture, crude protein, and crude fiber hut in an increase in nitrogen-free extract in sorghum silages. Hybrids were higher in crude protein and crude fiber but lower in nitrogen-free extract than standard varieties. Sterile hybrids were higher in moisture and crude fiber and lower in nitrogen-free extract than open-pollinated hybrids.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
