BMR Octane

BMR Octane is a premium quality forage sorghum with higher metabolisable energy and palatability. Ideal for grazing, hay or silage.

The hybrid is a proven performer with the added advantage of the BMR trait. BMR means the leaves and stems of the plants have lower lignin content, providing greater palatability, digestibility plus higher energy content – all leading to higher animal productivity.

BMR Octane has been bred and developed in Australia, has strong vigorous seedlings, a late maturity and good standability.
