Grazing Corn (BMR 84)

    Description

    Grazing Corn is a high quality warm season annual option which is especially useful in late summer as the nights begin to cool off. Corn will thrive with warm days and cool nights, whereas sorghum sudan prefers hot days and warm nights. Grazing corn is highly palatable though it does not have great regrowth. For this reason it is best for a late season planting where only one grazing event is planned. It will also provide a high carbon residue to help protect soil during the winter.
