Effect of Sorghum Maturity at Harvest and Variety on Certain Chemical Constituents in Sorghum Silages1

  1. F. G. Owen and
  2. 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.
