dc.description.abstract Rainfall was much above and temperature much below normal during the 1992 growing season. Both whole-plant dry matter (DM) and grain yields were excellent for all 11 hybrids. The two short, mid-maturing, forage sorghums (Northrup King 300 and Golden Harvest H-45) had the highest silage and grain yields; the early-maturing (Cargill 200F) and male sterile (Golden Harvest H-1) forage sorghums and the grain sorghum (DeKalb DK 42Y) the lowest silage yields. A storm with high winds on October 7 and 8 caused severe lodging in all six mid- and late-maturing hybrids (earlier-maturing hybrids had already been harvested). The 10 forage sorghum hybrids differed significantly in three important silage quality traits—whole-plant DM, crude protein, and acid detergent fiber. Silage agronomic performance for four of the forage sorghums over 6 of the past 7 years is presented. en_US
