3 SUMMARY SORGHUM WHAT IS SORGHUM?

4 SUMMARY SORGHUM High tolerance against heat and dry growing condition Very high Forage & Biomass potential Ideal alternative crop for the animal milk & beef industry Sorghum is a genus of numerous species of grasses, one of which is raised for grain and many of which are used as fodder plants either cultivated or as part of pasture. The plants are cultivated in warmer climates worldwide. Sorghum is in the subfamily Panicoideae.

7 SUMMARY SWEET SORGHUM SWEET SORGHUM Sweet Sorghum Hybrids for Juice Extraction for production of Molasses, Ethanol, Plastics...

8 SUMMARY SWEET SORGHUM Sweet sorghums are a very versatile crop and can have multiple uses: Sugar crop, to complement sugar cane and extend the operational cycle of the sugar mills High energy silage crop for dairy or beef cattle Green chop forage for dairy or beef cattle, sheep and goats Some of the advantages of Sweet sorghum when used as a replacement/supplement for sugar cane are: Short growing cycle. Sweet sorghums are generally harvested days after planting Depending on the customer s need we produce early, mid or late sweet sorghum hybrids Are established from seed. Mechanized planting is quick and efficient The grain and residual bagasse make excellent livestock feed or fuel. Extends harvest period and mill usage by up to four(4) months Sweet sorghum hybrids can be high yielding when grown correctly yields in excess of t/ha can be obtained.

9 SUMMARY SWEET SORGHUM Traditional sweet sorghums were varieties not hybrids and the varieties on the market are very old lack the yield performance and sugar yield of the new Sweet Pampa hybrids from ANZU Genética, LLC. Key advantages of Sweet Pampa sweet sorghum hybrids from ANZU Genética, LLC. Are : High yield of: o Stalks, 50-60t/ha or more( yield depends upon correct husbandry) o Juice, 30-40% of harvested material o Sugar up to 21% Brix when harvested at correct stage Excellent disease resistance Superior seedling vigor for ease of establishment High yields of grain in addition to stalks. The grain is suitable for livestock feed or fermentation Highly digestible stalks for livestock feed or cellulosic ethanol production

10 SUMMARY SWEET SORGHUM Production of Sweet Sorghum Hybrids PAMPA TANOL I, F1 & PAMPA TANOL II, F1 Seed Information: Seed count Seed color Seed treatment around seeds/kg white on request Planting rate: Sufficient seed needs to be planted to achieve the stands shown below. In general plant 5-7% more seed than calculated to allow for insect damage, planter damage and poor seed placement. Dryland planting rate: 50,000 plants per acre, 122,000/ha Irrigated or high rainfall areas 70,000 plants per acre, 170,000/ha

11 SUMMARY SWEET SORGHUM Soil temperature The soil should be a minimum of 65 degrees Fahrenheit, or 18 degrees Celsius Planting depth Plant at a depth of inches or 3-4 cm If soil is dry it is better to pre-irrigate then plant rather than trying to plant into dry soil and irrigate the crop to get a stand Fertility Requirements units of Nitrogen per acre or units/ha 40 units of Phosphorus per acre or 100 units/ha Potassium dependent on soil test

12 SUMMARY SWEET SORGHUM Harvest To optimize the sugar content, cut the crop when the seed at the inside of the panicle at the bottom of the panicle have turned their full color. Note that in certain subtropical or tropical locations a second crop will be able to be grown and harvested.

13 SUMMARY SWEET SORGHUM PRODUCT HYBRID DESCRIPTIONS

14 SUMMARY SWEET SORGHUM Hybrid PAMPA TANOL I, F1 & PAMPA TANOL II, F1 Silage, Sugar & MORE PAMPA TANOL I & II, F1 are brand new early sweet sorghum hybrids and an annual sweet sorghum developed for sugar production but also has superior silage producing qualities. PAMPA TANOL I & II, F1 have a good seedling vigor, rapid growth, high yield potential and good drought tolerance, PAMPA TANOL I & II, F1 produces high levels of sugar (Brix) in the stem with excellent volumes of extractable juice. PAMPA TANOL I & II, F1 are reaching the soft dough stage in approximately 115 days post planting. With a fair level of recovery after cutting, secondary grazing or an additional cut for sugar or silage can be obtained from this hybrids. Recommended planting rates are: Dry land 3 5 kg/ha, irrigated 4 6 kg/ha. Agronomic Traits

19 SUMMARY FORAGE SORGHUM PAMPA CENTURION, F1

20 SUMMARY FORAGE SORGHUM Hybrid The best forage sorghum Bmr6 for the BEST silage production. Ideal for dairy and beef feed lot producers who want quality forage with a white colored grain sorghum. Only for silage production High protein and energy levels Only plant 5 to 6 kg of seed per hectare Brachytic dwarf Brown Mid Rib 6 forage hybrid sorghum What this gene does is lower the lignin (the component of the cell walls that can limit the forage fiber digestion.) We look for less ligning condition in order to increase the digestibility and patability while increasing the number of leaves at the same time.

21 SUMMARY FORAGE SORGHUM PAMPA TRIUNFO, F1

22 SUMMARY FORAGE SORGHUM Hybrid For producers who are looking for QUALITY, QUANTITY and DIGESTIBILITY! BMR6 Hybrid A Sorghum Sudan Cross with Bmr6 technology High sugar content and superior re-growth Plant from 8 to 10 kg per hectare for SILAGE production Plant from 10 to 12 kg per hectare for Hay production For production of quality and quantity in a hybrid. Will come to head within 65 to 70 days of planting

24 SUMMARY FORAGE SORGHUM Hybrid For producers who need quantity and quality of green matter in a sorghum Sudan Cross that is photo sensitive and is a Bmr6 hybrid Sorghum Sudan Cross with a photo sensitive period with a Bmr 6 genetics Highly digestible High ratio of stalk to leaves Protein levels over 14 % Delayed maturity 12:20 hours of sunlight Plant from 10 to 12 kg for bail production Plant from 8 to 10 kg for silage production

25 SUMMARY GRAIN SORGHUM Grain Sorghum Hybrid

26 SUMMARY GRAIN SORGHUM Soil Preparation (This is where all the normal agricultural practices are done prior to planting) Good soil preparation plays a very important role in the final results of your crop. A uniform germination, good fertilizer usage and good assimilation of water usage by the plant are all direct results of good soil preparation. Good soil preparation, specially done on time, helps the soil to accumulate moisture, accumulate organic matter, and accumulate necessary nutrients for plant, root system and yield.

27 SUMMARY GRAIN SORGHUM Fertilizer Program Depends on soil type Soil deficiencies (make sure to have a soil and sub soil test done) Blocked elements as a result of high ph High ph Crop rotation It is very important to know the different hybrids in the line up in order to offer the best recommendation in accordance to hybrid agronomic profile
