"We increased our forage production by 5 tons when we switched to AF7401
from Seeds. It has a lot better standability because of its Brachyticdwarf genetics. I can get as many tons of sorghum as
I do with corn while cutting my costs by two-thirds.
When you consider availability of water, fertilizer
and seed costs — there's just no beating it. The
nutritionist likes it and it feeds well. "

"Due to the weather conditions that we are facing here in California, the last
several years have been very dry, so we've been experimenting with different
sorghums. We decided to grow AF7401 from Alta Seeds because it was a brown
midrib variety and would fit in with our dairy's needs. We like that it's a shorter
dwarf style plant but very leafy. It's very tolerant to our water conditions. We
like what we've seen and we'll be growing more of it in the future."

"Our Brachytic BMR sorghum has increased profitability on the dairy. We're
always dealing with drought so we count on forage sorghum. We've found it
works well in limited irrigation and helps us save on inputs. We grow Alta Seeds
AF7401 because its Brachytic genetics provide excellent standability and it has
BMR-6 for great nutritional value."

"MR Apollo hits those top end yields provided it is sown to good country.
Apollo's appearance is impressive, with a nice colour and very big grain size."
