Company Information

PHOTO PERIOD SENSITIVE HYBRID SORGHUM SUDANGRASS

 

Walter Moss Seed co is the world’s leader in Photo period sensitive forages. We have a wide base of distribution across the country as well as countless dealer in the us. These products are university tested and farmer approved.

The growth of a photo period sensitive plant is determined by day length, not by a set number of days from planting. Photo period sensitive plants require 12 hours and 20 minutes of sunlight and a 65 degree soil temperature at the time of planting. In the fall, when day length decreases to less than 12 hours and 20 minutes these plants will begin forming a seed head, but, until then, they will remain in the vegetative stage of growth. It is not uncommon for photo period sensitive plants to have 21+ leaves at the time of harvest. 

If planted in spring, it is possible to have up to 180 growing days. This delay in maturing allows for multiple cuttings and widens the harvest window, allowing the grower to harvest at their convenience. Conventional forages begin to set a seed head in 60-65 days from the date planted. As it sets a seed head, the nutritional value of the plant begins to decline day by day. To insure a quality crop, harvest must be made in a narrow time frame, usually in 14 days or less. There are a number of reasons a timely harvest may be delayed and with each passing day, the nutritional value of the crop decreases.
